Janice Quilliam – Do You Remember? Peel in Living Memory –
Photographs from the Collection of Leslie Quilliam, RBV

2.30pm, Saturday 4th January 2020 – Guild Room, Atholl Street, Peel

Janice is well-known for her work with Mooinjer Veggey, following in the footsteps of her father, Leslie Quilliam RBV, as someone who was greatly interested by the Manx language and in all things Manx. Janice will be drawing on photographs from her father’s collection to show some of the changes that have taken place in and around Peel in comparatively recent years – and some things that simply haven’t changed, too. It’s an opportunity for people not just to look at the photographs but to share their memories of people and places as well, because Janice says she hopes the photographs will lead to a good exchange of stories and information.

There will also be an opportunity to enjoy a cooish over refreshments, and to renew your subscription – and new members are also very welcome to join. The annual subscription remains at £8 for single membership and £10 for a family, which may be paid at the event or by contacting the Secretary at any time.

The International Celtic Congress is held annually to perpetuate the culture, ideals, and languages of the Celtic peoples, and to maintain an intellectual contact and close cooperation between the respective Celtic communities.

The Celtic Congress was founded in 1917, though its antecedents go back some years before that, in order to promote the knowlege, use, and appreciation of the languages and cultures of the six Celtic countries. National Branches of the Congress meet in an International Congress each year in order to help further these aims.
