What's On in June?

There's plenty to see and do on the Isle of Man in June... and it's not just motorbikes!

TT Qualifying & Races

29th May-10th June 2022

The Isle of Man TT is the ultimate 'must see it' event for motorsport fans across the globe. Every May and June the Isle of Man, a tiny country between England and Ireland, turns into motorcycle nirvana as the world’s greatest road racers gather to test themselves against the incredible ‘Mountain Course’ - a 37.73 mile beast of a course carved out of the island’s public roads. For over 100 years the Mountain’s siren call has drawn fans and riders to experience the unique atmosphere of the Isle of Man TT Festival.

The Big Splash 2022

From May to September

The Big Splash Logo

Our sculptures will be located around some of the most beautiful coastal corners of the Isle of Man allowing people to re-discover and engage with our island like never before. The event will not only offer endless hours of fun for residents and visitors but will create community cohesion and will have a positive impact on all those involved. Once the art trail closes, each of the dolphin sculptures will be auctioned off to raise funds in support of Hospice Isle of Man’s end of life and palliative care services.

The trail is designed to inspire both visitors and locals to explore and experience the Isle of Man’s UNESCO Biosphere pristine shorelines. From wind swept endless beaches in the north of the island, to the incredible dramatic vistas of the rocky coast in the south, the Big Splash trail will be for all to enjoy.
