Barclays customers were welcomed into the Victoria Street branch last Saturday with traditional Manx music and dancing as part of the bank’s Tynwald celebration day.
The bank organised a number activities in the branch to celebrate Manx heritage ahead of Manx National Week including face painting, live music and traditional Manx dancing. Customers were greeted by the Barclays customer services team in Manx Gaelic throughout the day.
Barclays extended its opening hours as part of the celebration day to give customers extra time to use the banking services in the branch before the Bank Holiday Monday.
Jarlath McQuaid, Premier Relationship Manager at Barclays’ Victoria Street branch, helped to organise the Tynwald celebration day.
“We had a lot of fun planning and taking part in the branch Tynwald celebration day. There was a brilliant atmosphere in the banking hall, customers really enjoyed the different events that we had going on including the traditional Manx dancing and the face painting was especially popular with children.
“It was great to be able to involve both the branch employees and the customers with the activities to celebrate Manx culture ahead of Manx National Week.”
