The Society's activities will be found in your latest Newsletter and in Forthcoming Events. Our main events are as follows:-

Winter Illustrated Talks During the winter months about six talks are given by a variety of speakers on topics of interest to members. The talks take place at the Museum Street Methodist Church which is equipped with comfortable seating and modern Audio/Visual facilities.

  • to stimulate public consciousness and appreciation of the beauty, history and character of Ipswich and its surroundings,
  • to encourage the preservation, development and improvement of the features which go to make pleasing and convenient conditions in which to live and work,
  • to pursue these ends by such means as meetings, lectures, study groups, exhibitions and publications.
