A Room Worthy of the Town

A Room Worthy of the Town
13th July 2020 Jubilee Hall

At the beginning of 1887, the people of every town and village across the country were putting their heads together to decide how best to commemorate the joyful occasion of Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee. Aldeburgh was no exception and Amanda Davies’ book, A Room Worthy of the Town, chronicles Jubilee Hall’s story over the last 130 years.

Enjoy a unique step back in time as you read about the grand opening, the influence WWI had on the events held at Jubilee Hall, and how a young composer named Benjamin Britten moving to Aldeburgh in 1947 resulted in the town being never quite the same again!
