Enjoy a debate in the Old House of Keys

About

Be greeted by the secretary of the former home of the Manx Parliament, take your seat in the finely restored debating chamber for a theatrical debate on setting the Island laws. See how democracy developed early – and the effect that political decisions have had on the Manx nation. Should motor racing be allowed on open roads? Should women get the vote? You decide.
