“Glorious theatre experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Eastern Angles (The John Mills Theatre) is simply super, we have never been disppointed!!! Their Chrstmas show is always hilarious, with a strong East Anglian connection. The spring and summer show tends to be more intense, so a very good combination. If you are in Ipswich with children or the young at heart this is a super live theatre attraction. But BOOK EARLY for the winter show can sell out quickly.the shows tour Suffolk etc, so check the webiste for towns and villages hosting these wonderful performances. Becoming a Friend supports their theatrical and educational work; but also ensures that you know all about forthcoming events. Highly recommended!

“Amateur dramatics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

may have more on but I used to go for the amateur dramatics. On the northern side of the town. Very Very small so make sure you book just in case
