The New Wolsey Theatre in collaboration with Suffolk Refugee Support.
Join us for the New Wolsey’s big celebration for an afternoon featuring free theatre, arts and crafts, live music and so much more! Listen to the Ipswich Youth Steel Pan Band, marvel at our wandering magician and enjoy some free sweet treats created by cooks from around the world!
*We have moved the Big Afternoon indoors due to a rainy weather forecast for later today. It's still going ahead!*
Here's the updated plan:
The acts will perform on our stage. As we have limited seating, tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Previously held tickets do not guarantee admittance.
The auditorium will open at 1:30pm, with the site open from 12:30pm.
