Ipswich: Ip-art Festival Launches

Two weeks of music, art and films begin in Ipswich this evening.

There’s a range of events over 17 days across the town including live music, open air films and dance acts.

The big finale on Sunday 7th July will be a whole day of live music for the Ipswich Music Day – one of the biggest free one-day gigs in the UK.
