Town Lectures and Concerts 2017

The eighteenth series of these highly popular lectures and concerts begins in January.
The lectures present Ipswich, with its rich history and cultural background through the eyes
of Suffolk-based speakers. Once again the series incorporates concert performances from
local musicians which highlight music through the ages and in a variety of styles.

Next in series:  Lecture – May 11


with Andrew Beal

The Battle of Arras (9 April to 16 June 1917) cost the lives of nearly 160,000 British
and Commonwealth soldiers, as well as over 125,000 German casualties. Andrew Beal
examines the tactics, the battle and the story of over 80 Ipswich men who lost their
lives and are remembered on the Arras Memorial in France.
