A ‘love letter’ to Ipswich

Theatres & arts organisations celebrate an incredible two years of culture 

In November 2017, We Are Ipswich (the collective of theatres and arts organisations in Ipswich), released their cultural manifesto for the town; setting out their mission to make Ipswich a great place to live, work, visit and invest. 

Two years later; DanceEast, Eastern Angles, Gecko, New Wolsey Theatre, Pacitti Company (SPILL Festival), Red Rose Chain, Suffolk Libraries, Ipswich Museums and Ipswich Borough Council theatres (Ipswich Regent Theatre, Corn Exchange and Ipswich Entertains) are excited to announce the huge positive impact that culture has made in Ipswich: over 5,000 performances, 1 million attendances, 250 jobs and £25million for the local economy 

Collectively, the organisations that make We Are Ipswich have created new opportunities for young Ipswich and Suffolk artists, developed home-grown shows that have gone on to tour the UK and across the worldengaged and empowered local communities, brought world-renowned art to Ipswich and contributed over £25million to the local economy. All helping to cement Ipswich as a nationally significant destination for arts and culture.
