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.

Lectures will be held at the Manx Museum lecture hall whenever IOM Government Covid regulations permit and provided visiting lecturers are able to make suitable travel arrangements. Lectures will be made available simultaneously on Zoom so that members may choose whether to attend in person or by Zoom at home. In the event that a lecture cannot be delivered in person at the museum we intend that it should be delivered by Zoom to members at home and to those attending at the Museum.

Members can bring a guest at £10 per lecture, (students free).
