Sir Thomas Browne's birthday

Professor Breathnach has made an elegant start to the Browne quatercentenary celebrations. Readers may be interested to know that a celebration is to be held in Norwich on 19–20 October this year. The programme includes: an academic symposium (in which Sir Keith Thomas, Dr Trevor Hughes, Professor Harold Cook and the Rev Reginald Askew, will be speakers); a concert of 17th century and other relevant music with selected readings of Browne's writings in Norwich Cathedral (given by the Keswick Hall Choir conducted by Mr John Aplin); an exhibition of Browne memorabilia in the County Archive Centre; and a service of thanksgiving in St Peter Mancroft Church (Browne's place of worship and of his interment); a conducted educational tour of Browne's Norwich; and a formal luncheon.
