Town Lectures and Concerts 2018

This year will be the nineteenth series of the highly popular Town Lectures and Concerts.
The lectures present Ipswich, with its rich history and cultural background through the
eyes of Suffolk-based speakers and with concert performances from local musicians.



The RSPB is the country’s largest nature conservation charity, inspiring everyone to give nature
a home. Together with its partners, it protects threatened birds and wildlife, so that our towns,
coast and countryside will teem with life once again. It plays a leading role in BirdLife International,
a worldwide partnership of nature conservation organisations. Ian Barthorpe explores the history, management and wildlife at one of the UK’s premier wildlife sites: RSPB Minsmere nature reserve.
