The head of one of Suffolk’s major cultural centres will be addressing county businesses at an event later this month.

Snape Maltings chief executive Roger Wright is guest speaker at Suffolk Chamber of Commerce’s next networking lunch, which takes place at Snape Malitngs from 11.30am to 2pm on April 24.

Delegates will get to hear first-hand what’s in store for the celebrated musical venue.

Mr Wright was controller of BBC Radio 3 and director of BBC Proms for 17 and seven years respectively and was awarded a CBE for services to music in 2015.

Chamber operations director Amanda Ankin said “Suffolk’s creative and cultural industries are booming and their contribution to the county’s economy is growing. It is estimated that as much as 5% of the total Suffolk workforce is directly employed in this sector.

“In addition, the county is becoming an increasingly popular filming location - with over 200 registered location.

“It is no surprise that these industries have been identified as a growth sector in the Suffolk Growth Strategy.

“Roger’s talk is a must-attend for anyone interested in finding out more about this sector in general and his plans for the Snape Maltings complex in particular.”

Attendees are welcome to attend a free tour of Snape Maltings once the event has concluded.
