Four FREE autumn lectures, delivered through Manx by Paul Rogers as part of Culture Vannin's development work, will be taking place in-person at Culture Vannin, St. John's. Though sessions are free to attend, donations to support the development work of Culture Vannin would be greatly appreciated. Space is limited, and so it is necessary to sign up in advance - spaces will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. You can sign up to all, or some, of the sessions, here: Survey Monkey link for Leaghtyn yn Ouyr or by emailing gaelg(at)
