Fantabulous Felixstowe Museum is now closed for the winter
There was so much to see and do at the museum this year. Throughout the season we could revisit (or visit?) the 1980s, the decade that brought us the mullet hairstyle, shoulder pads, shell suits, leg warmers, ‘Shaddap You Face’ and ‘The Empire Strike Back’ – and also Felixstowe Museum! We first opened our doors in 1982.
The office continues to be open during the week for enquiries and research. Contact us by email or phone to check we’re available.
Our evening talks (in conjunction with the Felixstowe Family History Society) are held at Broadway House in Orwell Rd, Felixstowe. We meet on the second Wednesday of the month at 7.30pm. All welcome.
Be sure to check the details below as there may be an option of attending by Zoom depending on the speaker. Please give a week’s notice if you wish to use Zoom.

John Field on ‘Ipswich’s 12 Medieval Churches’
Ipswich Town Centre is fortunate in hosting 12 Mediaeval Churches (one of the largest collections in one town in the country), of which six are now redundant.
John’s illustrated talk covers both the living and redundant churches. These ancient buildings performed an important role throughout the life of Ipswich and each has many fascinating stories to tell about the town and its long history.
It may also be possible to join this meeting by Zoom – please email firstname.lastname@example.org at the latest by Wednesday 3rd May for details and to register your interest.
