Well this is going to prove to be one of the maddest Mad Sundays.

Ok the racing’s all pushed back to today but there will still be a full programme of entertainment at Bushys in Douglas and Port Erin.

1-4pm on the Carole Nash Stage we have the lads from the BIG BEAT


The Big Beat For Hospice – a group of local drummers who raised over £21,000 drumming non-stop for over 51 hours in 2014 are making an exclusive appearance at the Bushy’s Tent during TT2015 on Mad Sunday afternoon from 2pm.

This is followed by one of the highlights of last year’s tent-ROC VANNIN CHOIR who rose from the ashes of the old Rock Choir in April 2013. They have around 45 members from all walks of life, including 2 men!! 32 of these are expected today.


They sing a variety of tunes from the Mamas and the Papas, through Elbow to The Foo Fighters. They have a number of public performances this year including The Deep South Festival, The Royal Manx Show, Ramsey National Week, Port St Mary Lifeboat Day, Island at War and the Relay for Life, as well as a number of private engagements.

7.30-9.30pm slot will be firm rock favourites LITTLE BITTA ROSIE

A collection of some of the finest and tightest musicians on the Isle.These guys already graced the Carole Nash Stage at the Charity Aid concert on Sunday and finished off the night in style. An early slot for them but guaranteed to be a memorable one.Tough call to miss some racing but for us the music and beer and you come first! All the classic ACDC tracks are here sung perfectly by Johnson-era Ade Bruce.
