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.


Musical Director: Steven Blomfield
Formed in April 1968, the SCMV Choir has built a reputation and tradition for music to entertain a wide variety of audiences. One of its main purposes is to assist local communities and charitable
organisations in their fundraising, whilst representing the Constabulary. The choir is pleased to recruit and welcome members from all walks of life, with or without a connection to the Constabulary.
It is currently busy planning celebrations to mark its fiftieth anniversary in 2018.
