Charlie Haylock takes ‘An Eccentric look at East Anglia’

Saturday 3 August at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


One of East Anglia’s leading entertainers, and author of several books, gives witty and unique insight into rural East Anglia – its dialect, humour and general ‘goings on’.

Charlie is not only a hugely entertaining speaker, but also a mine of information about the history of the English language, and how so many regional dialects developed in this small group of islands.  Interspersed amid the laughter are countless nuggets of information gleaned over years of study. His talks make for a fascinating listen.

He is a leading authority on East Anglian dialect, and famously coached Ralph Fiennes and the cast of the Netflix film, ‘The Dig’ in the Suffolk dialect.  In 2023, he was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Suffolk.

If you enjoyed Charlie’s talk in 2022 about ‘The Dig’ you won’t want to miss this.
