Saturday 3rd December, 9am-2pm
Come along and listen to a Manx Miscellany at Elmwood House on Saturday 3 December. Eleven speakers will each talk for 15 minutes about their favourite part of the Isle of Man.
Each of the speakers was a student on last year’s Introduction to the Isle of Man evening course. One of their assignments was to give a 15-minute presentation about their chosen part of the Island. The presentations were so interesting that we’ve asked the students to present them again – this time to a public audience. Join us as we learn all about the Isle of Man, from Andreas in the north to Perwick Bay in the south. This promises to be a fascinating day!
