Ipswich Arts Festival (Ip-Art) 19 June-12 July

The Ipswich Arts Festival 2015 (aka Ip-Art) takes place from 19 June to 12 July.

http://www.ip-art.com/

The festival, at venues throughout the town, has something for all ages and tastes. It covers music, film, dance, literature and a range of other art forms, including a many activities for those who want to have a try themselves.

One of the most popular events is usually Music Day in Christchurch Park, which this year is on Sunday, 5th July. Apart from a host of performers in the park itself, there are also classical recitals in Christchurch Mansion and nearby churches. It is the largest free festival in the East of England and is a great day out for families as well as the usual music festival devotees.

For those coming from London, there are regular trains from London Liverpool Street (at least two an hour, more at busier times), journey time around 70 minutes.

Oh Joy! I was in Ipswich two or three years ago and went to a couple of Arts Festival events and I was recently thinking to myself about it. This really is great information, thanks.

Just bumping this to remind people it's music Day in Christchurch Park (and in Christchurch Mansion and the neighbouring churches) on Sunday (5th July). It is always a great day out for people of all ages and all musical tastes, and it's all free apart from the food and drink.

We went to Music Day last Sunday and it was really good. The poor weather earlier in the afternoon meant it got going a bit later than usual, but then the sun came out and it turned out to be as good as ever. The late start meant people stayed later than I remembered in previous years.
