Town Lectures and Concerts 2019

This year will be the twentieth 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.


Simon Bridge

Although there is no direct evidence that Shakespeare travelled to this part of the world,
the actors certainly did, giving local audiences something of the experience Londoners
would have had at the playhouses in the capital. Experience what life was like for William Shakespeare, his actors and his audience at The Globe Theatre. And find out if you’ve got
the right stuff to entertain an unruly mob of 3,000 impatient theatre-goers – with no rehearsal!
