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.
