The Swan Hotel, Lavenham

The workshop takes place at The Swan hotel in Lavenham. Believed by many to be the most well preserved mediaeval village in England, Lavenham is situated about half an hour’s drive to the west of Ipswich. The hotel dates from the fourteenth century and has been carefully modernised to retain much of its original architectural character.

Seckford Hall, Great Bealings

Friday evening’s reception will be hosted by Professor Peter Cochrane in Seckford Hall at Great Bealings. Ancestral home of the Seckford family for some five centuries, Seckford Hall was built in the mid-1500s on the site of an older Hall dating from 1489. The Hall is about fifteen minutes’ drive northeast of Ipswich, close to BT Laboratories.
