Town Lectures & Concerts


Covid 19 and Lockdown, Ipswich Arts Association will monitor the ongoing situation
and updates for future Lectures & Concerts will be posted here as available.

Ipswich Arts Association Town Lectures and Concert series 2020 is now complete.
Whilst at the beginning of the year the Lectures and Concerts ran as normal, lockdown and  Covid 19 restrictions caused cancellations midway through the year. The series was able to re-start in the autumn with restrictions, each event limited to 30 people with registering in advance.
No refreshments could be served at this time.
Covid 19 restrictions were strictly observed and visitors to the events in September and October reported feeling very safe.
Regrettably the final November lecture and December concert had to be cancelled.
