If you can’t hold an event but would still like to be part of the fun then why not consider becoming an IOW Day Volunteer? There are a range of skills that we need, and whether you can provide only a couple of hours a week or a lot more we would love to hear from you. See Volunteers for more information.
How to Join In…
Hold an Event?
We will showcase all events we know about and if they are public we can help promote.
Hang out bunting. Over the past cuple of years we have seen close to 200 miles of bunting waved across the Island. This year there will be 50 miles of new bunting available to hang from every building, street, window, tree or flag pole. Please just take your bunting down after the event and put in a safe place for next year as its 100% reusable.
Have a beach party. and help us rid the beaches of plastics on our huge coastline clean-up. Join Nipper and the gang as we clean the Islands shores and celebrate together.
Take part in Island’s Got Talent -Have you a hidden talent or love being on stage? Then why not take part in the second ever Island’s Got Talent – with a celebrity judging panel
