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.

Lecture 8th March


 Over the centuries, Ipswich has become home to many different groups of refugees from
around the world, from the Huguenots of the late 17th century to Basque refugee children
and more recent arrivals fleeing persecution and conflict in countries such as Iraq and Syria.
This talk aims to reveal the fascinating history of refugees in Ipswich, the mark they have left
on the town, and the work of Suffolk Refugee Support in helping our refugee communities.
