The Ipswich Arts Festival 2009
The 7th Ip-art Festival takes place from 27th June to 12th July 2009

The Ipswich arts festival is the premier summer festival for Ipswich and Suffolk. Taking place this year from 27th June to 12th July, it is a fantastic celebration of the arts and gets bigger and more dynamic year after year!

Its success comes from an eclectic mixture of attractions, performances and events that appeal to a wide audience. Dance, visual arts, poetry, music, theatre, literature, opera, cinema…among the 60 plus events there will definitely be something to suit you!

Art and culture have always played an important role in the history of Ipswich. During the festival, the unique programme of exhibitions, performances and events by national and locally based organisations and artists brings together the wealth of contemporary art taking place in the town today.

As well as using the more traditional spaces, Ip-art takes exhibitions and performances into public buildings and spaces throughout the town. This colourful combination brings tradition, innovation and imagination to the arts in Ipswich.

The Ip-art festival is organised by Ipswich Borough Council in conjunction with the Festival Management Group, made up of specialist arts partners across Ipswich and Suffolk.
