Major events come to Isle of Wight in June

Tourists planning their breaks away next year have been informed that Isle of Wight holidays in June can coincide with some of the island's top events.

The Isle of Wight Festival - a nominee for Best Major Festival at the upcoming UK Festival Awards - is held each June and attracts tens of thousands of revellers, with the 11th to the 13th the planned date for 2011.

Next year, the Natwest Island Games are also being hosted on the Isle of Wight, from June 25th to July 1st.

"Visitors can enjoy watching a variety of sports from athletics to archery and sailing to swimming and the opening ceremony...promises to be a colourful spectacle drawing on the island's rich carnival heritage," noted the Isle of Wight Council.

One of the UK's biggest sailing events, the JP Morgan Asset-Management Round the Island Race, takes place on June 25th, which the local authority stated could be an ideal treat for Fathers' Day.
