Suffolk’s Green Story: Reflect | Learn | Act explores at Suffolk’s environment past and present, the changes and challenges impacting the local area today and what we can do to make a difference.

The exhibition will take visitors on a journey that explores Suffolk’s Green Story; through Suffolk’s wonderfully diverse landscapes – the sandy Breckland of the northwest, the woodland of the central belt and the coastal sands and marshes of the eastern Sandlings.

It will reflect on major events in Suffolk’s weather and climate history, such as the 1953 floods, and tell the story of Suffolk’s agricultural heritage, unique wildlife and flora. The exhibition will feature loaned items from Britten Pears Arts which reveal the damage done to Benjamin Britten's home in Aldeburgh during the 1953 floods and scores from Noye’s Fludde, his one-act opera which took inspiration from the floods. The exhibition will also feature collections from British composer, arranger, conductor, teacher and musicologist Imogen Holst. Maps demonstrating coastal erosion, documents showing agricultural and natural environmental change and the impact our domestic lives have on the environment.

The final section of the exhibition is dedicated to exploring what we can all do to slow down climate change and our role as individuals in responding to the global climate emergency.
