Lecture – 12th May
The Progress of the Ipswich Charter Hangings
Isobel Clover.

In 2000 a project was launched to celebrate 800 years of Ipswich being granted a Royal Charter by King John. The resulting Ipswich Charter Hangings – a series of eight large, embroidered wall panels – provide a visual record and a unique way of exploring the achievements and often hidden history of the town. Come and find out about the journey they have been on over the past 20 years, the connections made, the stories uncovered and what people have learnt from seeing them.

Museum St. Methodist Church, (entrance in Black Horse Lane), Ipswich IP1 2EF
1.00pm – 1.50pm.  Doors open 12.30pm.
