Welcome to the Isle of Man Natural History and Antiquarian Society Website

Our objectives are the advancement of knowledge of natural history and human history and cultural development, especially in the Isle of Man and related countries. 

We organise events throughout the year - excursions in the summer and lectures in the winter.  Some are particularly suitable for children.

We publish many of the lectures in our Proceedings - now known as Isle of Man Studies

Announcements

Rescheduled 2021 AGM
by email/postal ballot

Regrettably due to the current COVID-19 lockdown, we were not able to hold our AGM on Saturday 27th March 2021. In the current COVID-19 situation your committee has decided, reluctantly, that once again in order to ensure that the AGM can go ahead in some form in a timely manner, the 141st AGM would be held as a ‘virtual AGM’, with voting by email/postal ballot. We have dispensation from H.M. Attorney General to do this once more. AGM packs (Notice of the 141st Annual General Meeting, summary reports, accounts and minutes of the 140th AGM) have been despatched to all members by post. Members who have furnished email addresses to the Society have been sent a personalised voting form by email; it would be greatly assist administration if those could be returned by email please. Members who haven’t been able to provide the Society with an email address will find a hard-copy voting form enclosed with their AGM pack. 

We would request that members kindly reply – by email if possible, otherwise by post – with your votes, by 6.00 pm on 24th April 2021 please.

The Results will appear on the next programme card/newsletter and the list of Officers will also appear on the relevant page here on the Society’s web site.

We look forward to meeting together in person soon, but in the meantime, please accept the committee’s thanks for your support and good wishes during these times.
