Winter Talks Programme 2022-2023

The first of our winter talks took place on 16th November. We kicked off with a talk by Peter Cannell about “The Manx Civil Walk War…if it wasn’t for our women”. Peter gave a fascinating account of Manx history including little known facts about the Vikings.  We would like to thank Peter for stepping in at short notice and providing the group with such an enjoyable presentation.

Wednesday 11th January 2023: ‘Rain or shine we’ll be fine’

The second of our Winter Talks takes place in the new year and we are delighted to welcome Adrian Cowin, Chief Meteorological Officer, to provide an insight into weather forecasts are obtained.
(Please note: Adrian is not responsible for the weather, he only reports it so please be gentle with him!)

For our final talk of the series, we welcome John Struthers and John Shakespeare from the Ellan Vannin Pipes and Drums who will will give us a humorous insight into the world of bagpipes. Hopefully we might persuade them to share a few tunes with us and may be  get those feet tapping!
As always there will be refreshments and the opportunity for plenty of chat following all the talks.
All talks will start at 7pm and will be held at the usual venue – Mylchreest Court in Peel. Parking is available at the QEII school or the football club.
