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.


Suffolk Coastal musicians Stephen Harding, Chris Pearce, Jane Burn and
Mike Tyndale-Biscoe entertain you with a mix of traditional and contemporary folk music.
As Shingle Street Folk Band they are regular performers on the local music scene, as
well as all being accomplished choral singers who enjoy singing in close harmony.

Please Note – the front page article about the Town Lecture and Concert series,
published in the current edition of the Newsletter, has two date errors as follows:
The Gusford Primary Choir concert takes place on the 14th of Feb not the 4th as printed and
the Shingle Street Folk Band concert takes place on the 11th of Apr not the 12th as printed.
The dates published on the ‘what’s on’ pages are correct. Apologies from the IAA.
