*Play about Joe Kennedy to be performed at the Museum* #75thVEDay

29 February 2020

*NEW EVENT* We are pleased to announce that a new play about the life of Joe Kennedy, who was sadly killed whilst flying over Suffolk, will be shown at 4pm & 7pm at the museum on Saturday 9th May.
This play will tell the dramatic and tragic story of Joe Kennedy Jnr, the elder brother of JFK, who as a young man seemed destined to become President of the United States – until, that is, the Second World War intervened. No Ordinary Joe; No Ordinary Kennedy examines Joe’s complex character, and traces events which led Joe to volunteering for a top-secret and highly dangerous mission, in which he was required to fly a Liberator plane packed with explosives and bail out before it crossed the Channel. Tragically his plane exploded over Blythburgh, Suffolk killing him and his co-pilot.
The event will be part of our 75th VE Day commemorations.
Tickets can be bought from our giftshop when we open again for the new season or from this link: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/ink-festival/ink-on-tour-no-ordinary-joe-no-ordinary-kennedy/e-jmgqpk
