Lectures Programme

The Arts Society Isle of Man arrange an annual programme of lectures. Speakers from the Isle of Man, the UK and further afield present lectures covering a wide range of subjects including decorative arts, individual artists, art movements, music, architecture and history.

Owing to Coronavirus restrictions on travel, lectures by UK based lecturers will be delivered by Zoom until the Isle of Man Government permits unrestricted travel to and from the UK. The option to attend Zoom lectures at the Manx Museum lecture hall will be kept under review.

Members who wish to bring a guest at £10 per lecture, (students free) please .
