    Cardinal Wolsey portrait

    A talk by Richard Wilson, Musician and Chairman or the Friends of the Ipswich Museums

    Just before the Wolsey exhibition closes our Chairman will reprise his 2015 University of Suffolk Wolsey lecture on the sound world of the Cardinal. He will guide us on an aural journey from the bells of his hometown to the magnificent entertainment at The Field of the Cloth of Gold. There will be a particular focus on the music at Cardinal's College in Ipswich, as described in the College Statutes which is one the current exhibition's major attractions.

    Doors open 6:30pm for the talk starting at 7pm and refreshments will be provided before the talk. Tickets are £6 for members, £8 for non-members; booking is recommended. Cheques should be made payable to “FoIM”.

    To book tickets Friends are asked to use the booking slips and payment options detailed in the recent newsletter. Everyone is welcome at our events so anyone without newsletters can contact us directly via our contact form.

    More details will be posted soon.
