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.


Cedric Morris was a highly acclaimed, commercially successful artist who became
disillusioned with the London art scene’s bias towards abstract paintings. On moving to
Suffolk in 1930 with his partner, Arthur Lett Haines, he continued to paint prolifically while
creating wonderful gardens and running an art school. Although he enjoyed a devoted
following from fellow artists and friends, his work was largely forgotten until recently.
This illustrated talk offers a glimpse into the world of this under-rated artist.
