Hop tu Naa comes from ‘Shoh ta’n Oie’ meaning ‘This is the Night’. It is a Celtic celebration falling on 31st October and marks the last night of the Celtic New Year. It was a time when farmers would celebrate a safely gathered harvest and all the preparations were made for the long winter ahead.
As parking is limited at Cregneash, a free park and ride service is in operation for all event goers on the number 28 service bus from Port Erin, Port St. Mary and Scoill Phurt le Moirrey. Further information is available on our website www.manxnationalheritage.im.
