Lunchtime Talk will reveal the mysteries of Suffolk’s coastline

Ipswich Arts Association will host a lunchtime lecture on Thursday, January 11.

Titled ‘an A-Z of Curious Suffolk’, the talk by Sarah Doig will reveal strange and mysterious facts about the county’s coastline in alphabetical order.

Audience members will find out just how old the ‘ancient’ game of dwile flonking is, what writers Pepys and Defoe said about Suffolk cheese and which tower was probably just built to curry favour with the monarch.

The talk, at Museum Street Methodist Church in Black Horse Lane, Ipswich, will begin at 1pm but tea and coffee will be served before hand from 12.30pm.

Admission is free but donations of £2 per person are encouraged and will go toward maintaining the series.

Donations of at least £2.00 per head are valued to maintain the series.
