Culture Vannin contributed a major grant to the refurbishment of Laxey Working Men's Institute - now known as The Institute.
With the help of grants and donations like that from Culture Vannin, a group of hardy volunteers completely restored this building, turning into an amazing arts and community centre in the heart of Laxey.
The building consists of 2 floors - the Main Hall has a stage, full PA and lighting systems. It could be used for anything from meetings, lectures, music & drama events to parties, functions, exercise & dance classes. The Lower floor along with the toilets and kitchen is divided into 2 rooms a small meeting room linked via double doors to a larger room suitable for parties, exercise and dance classes.
Our grant is recognised under our previous name, the Manx Heritage Foundation.
