Ipswich Music Day 2017

Once again IAA organised the ‘Classical Stages” at this years event.
The Wolsey Gallery at Christchurch Mansion was not available, due to a major exhibition,
but the Masonic Hall in Soame St. proved to be a popular substitute. This enabled us to
continue with three ‘stages’: Bethesda Baptist Church, St Margarets Church and the Masonic Hall.

This again provided an opportunity for member organisations to promote themselves and their work. IAA members were on hand to answer questions and a series of short daily lunchtime lectures proved popular
The format for the event continues to evolve and IAA plan to continue  this initiative and run ‘Open House’ again in 2018.

Ipswich Charter Hangings / St Peters by the Waterfront



Scaffolding has now been removed from the tower of St Peters,
which remained open, whilst repair work was undertaken. During the
work, access was via the side gate in Quay St. rather than the main gate. However, the Charter Hangings and the Church itself have again proved popular with visitors.
St Peters is open as follows:
May – September:  Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 10 – 4  Wednesday 10 – 2
October – April:  Tuesday and Wednesday 10 – 2
