There is ample free parking on site at Jimmy’s Farm. The farm is only 7 minutes away from Ipswich Train station and is therefore a very reasonably priced taxi ride.

Disabled parking will be available for those with restricted access. Please let our Box Office team know about any accessibility needs you or your party member has in advance, during your booking.

Why not make a day of it? Jimmy’s Farm has loads of family-friendly activities to get stuck into and things to explore! The gates for Theatre In The Forest open at 6pm and you are welcome to check out the animals before the performance. For entry before 6pm normal charges will apply.

In 17 years of Theatre in the Forest we’ve only ever had to cancel a handful of performances due to extreme weather; we carry on in rain and we also provide basic ponchos to keep you dry –  this is to substitute the use of umbrellas within the space – but please feel free to also bring your own waterproofs.
