Ipswich Music Day, Sunday 7th July

Ipswich Music Day is this Sunday, 7th July


Although this is technically part of the Ip-Art Festival, it is such a big event in itself that it deserves a separate mention. Held in Christchurch Park, it is the largest free music festival in the East of England. As well as bands on seven stages dotted around the park, there are also classical concerts in the neighbouring St Margaret's Church. There are other events for all the family, as well as food and drink. A wonderful day out for people of all ages, be it groups of friends, families, couples and singles. In true Suffolk style, people don't take themselves too seriously, not even some of the bands!

Visitors from outside Ipswich may like to know that the train from Liverpool Street Station takes around 1hr and 12 minutes, then a short bus ride from Ipswich Station. You could combine your visit to the park with a stroll around the town centre or the waterfront where you could take in a meal and a drink.

We'll definitely be there. It's always good but this yer it has the added bonus of especially fine weather. We arranged our periodic weekend with the in-laws just so we could go there. The festival in the park, followed by a drink or two on the waterfront, a grand day out indeed:-)

Even better than expected. A day at the festival in the park followed by a drink in the Sir Arthur Ransome just in time to see Murray win, then a stroll to the waterfront. It wan't all rock music in the park as we went into Christchurch Mansion to see the choral singing. A great crowd as always.
