A Suffolk Community 50 Years On

A talk by Dr John Gordon (University of East Anglia) on the work of Suffolk A-level students for the 'Akenfield Now' education project.

The project follows on from Ronald Blythe’s book 'Akenfield' and Peter Hall’s 1974 film of the same name. The students worked with the East Anglian Film Archive, Norfolk Record Office, BBC Voices and Empty Vessel Theatre Company to make films matching oral history accounts of life in Suffolk. These new short films will be shown as part of tonight’s presentation.

Starts: 7pm
Tickets: £12, £10 for Friends of Moyse's Hall Museum
Venue: Moyse's Hall Museum, Bury St Edmunds
