Sunday Talk Series: “Peculiar Turns” – 17th February


An illustrated talk  by Lynn Whitehead.

The Theatre Royal has played host to a huge range of touring performers and acts during its 200 years – some of them more bizarre and eccentric than others.  In this talk Lynn will introduce you to some of the more unusual!

Lynn Whitehead was a professional actor-musician for 25 years before moving into theatre-outreach work.  She worked with the National Theatre education department and then moved to Suffolk and headed up the Creative Learning departments at both the New Wolsey and then the Theatre Royal.  She is now a trained Bury St Edmunds tour guide and continues to work in the community arts sector alongside her guiding.
