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.


 – Soloists: Ben Banks & Harrison Cole

The Suffolk Organists’ Association presents a concert of light classical music played by two
of Suffolk’s most able young organists: Ben Banks and Harrison Cole. They are both currently
studying music at university and have received organ scholarships from their colleges.

The Corn Exchange organ was built by one of the best Victorian organ builders,
Thomas Lewis, allowing Ipswich to hear a distinguished concert instrument once again,
a hundred years after the grand opening of the old Public Hall organ, sadly lost in a fire.

Please note that this event takes place in the Ipswich Corn Exchange. (Map /Details)
