New Wolsey Theatre Box Office has a low level service counter and an induction hearing loop system – to use, turn your hearing aid to T. You can also live chat with one of our Ticket Sales Assistants on this very website. Just down there, on the right.

Hearing Enhancement

A Sennheiser Infrared hearing enhancement system operates at the New Wolsey Theatre. Headsets are available from the Box Office, which can be used with or without a hearing aid. A refundable deposit of £10 is required for each headset. We regret that there is not a hearing enhancement system at the New Wolsey Studio.

Venue Access

New Wolsey Theatre, New Wolsey Studio, the HEG (High Street Exhibition Gallery) and DanceEast are accessible to wheelchair users - please advise at point of booking. Assistance dogs are welcome at all PULSE venues, let us know in advance if you can.


We recommend Wolsey Pay and Display Car Park - accessible from Black Horse Lane, then left to the end of Chapman Lane where there are 5 Blue Badge Parking Bays. Parking charges do apply. You can also drop off outside the New Wolsey Studio on St George’s Street or the HEG on Museum Street.

By train

Hey, Southerners!

You can get to Ipswich by train in just over an hour from London Liverpool Street, with trains leaving 3 times an hour. The last train to London from Ipswich is 22.43, although we have many fantastic hotels and B&Bs we can recommend!

Hey, Northerners!

Norwich and Peterborough (the places, not the building society) also offer a frequent service to Ipswich.

Check times and prices at:

By car

Hey, Southerners!

M25 and then the A12. When you see a Toys R Us, you've hit Ipswich.

Hey, Northerners!

M6 or M1 and then A14. If you get to Felixstowe, you've gone too far.
