As an international touring physical theatre company we like to make the most of Ipswich’s worldwide cultural offer when we are in our hometown…

Morning

Drop in to an open rehearsal session and watch world-renowned physical theatre company Gecko as they create their new show (working title) The Wedding.

Lunch

Ararat Restaurant on Norwich Road serves freshly cooked traditional Turkish cuisine throughout the day. Relax and enjoy or grab and go if you’re in a hurry!

Afternoon

The parks of Ipswich are teeming with events throughout the summer months; International Music in Christchurch Park, Hollywood Classics at the outdoor cinema in Holywells Park and Global Food & Music day also in Holywells. Alternatively if the Great British Summer weather lets you down you can spend the afternoon watching a matinee at either DanceEast or New Wolsey Theatre, both of whom regularly have exciting international companies touring to their venues.

Dinner

Touring so many times to China has given us a taste for Chinese fare. Get an authentic taste of China at Trong’s restaurant on St Nicholas Street, but make sure you book! 

Evening

From thrillers and dramas to comedies and musicals, Ipswich Film Theatre shows some of the best current films from around the world (with English subtitles!).
