Presented by Youth Perform 2019

Mr. Shufflebottom has never been one to back down from a challenge… he can do a full shop in under 45 minutes, and he can unblock the toilet quicker than you can say ‘hurry up Dad, I need a wee!’

So now he’s set his sights on something much bigger than painting the back bedroom in just one weekend… he wants to go to the moon! It’s one small step for man, and one giant leap for Dad kind.

50 years on from the moon landing children and young people from school and drama groups across Suffolk come together to present the annual Youth Perform! Festival

IJF - Stars at St Peter's

St Peters By The Waterfront, College Street, Ipswich, IP1 1XF

A few more details ...

Stars at St Peter’s has sold out.

£15 in advance, £16 on the door. Concessionary tickets available.

7:30pm-10:30pm. Doors Open 7.00pm.
St Peters by the Waterfront Arts Centre, College Street, Ipswich

A return of our acclaimed Stars at St Peter’s club style show. This year we feature top singer Polly Gibbons, sax supremo Alan Barnes, violin king Ben Holder with the great Chris Ingham Trio with Chris Ingham on piano, Arnie Somogyi on bass and George Double on drums. Plus the popular opening set by tomorrow’s jazz musicians, the West Suffolk Youth Jazz Orchestra.

Stars at St Peter’s is a unique and special long night of jazz, featuring top players all performing together as well as in duets and trios. If you like jazz it is a night not to be missed with a unique line up of players you never see in this combination.

Polly Gibbons is a growing presence in the UK Jazz scene. She has already been nominated twice as "Best Jazz Vocalist" by JAZZ FM and the BBC. Fully embracing the inspiring expansiveness of American Jazz, Blues, Soul and R&B, her career as a vocalist, composer and live performer is influenced by these genres. But Polly is hesitant to define her music as strictly Jazz; her wide repertoire and the ease and style with which she performs it, have led her to appear at a variety of music festivals and venues: from the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London opening for George Benson and Gladys Knight, or for Bozz Scaggs at the famous Montreal Jazz Festival. Her music and her voice have a broad appeal to music lovers - and her ongoing touring over the last few years in the USA has gained her many new fans. Polly's third album on Los Angeles based label, Resonance records 'All I Can Do' released in February 2019. Click here to listen to Polly Gibbons.

Alan Barnes is a prolific international performer, composer, arranger, bandleader and touring soloist. He is best known for his work on clarinet, alto and baritone sax, where he combines a formidable virtuosity with a musical expression and collaborative spirit that have few peers. His range and brilliance have made him a “first call” for studio and live work since his precocious arrival on the scene more than thirty-five years ago. His recorded catalogue is immense and he has made over thirty albums as leader and co-leader alone. Click here to listen to Alan Barnes.

Ben Holder is one of the most gifted and exciting young jazz violinists in the UK. Taught classically from the age of six, he studied at the Birmingham Conservatoire. During his classical studies, Ben began listening to Jazz - classic masters such as Benny Goodman and Oscar Peterson and of course the great jazz violinists including Grappelli, Joe Venuti and the awe inspiring Stuff Smith. Ben's innate sense of swing rhythm, (something which often eludes classical players), stems from those early listening sessions - and his various awards bear testimony to his abilities. A first call jazz violinist for many of the UK's top bands and studios.

Neil Yates is a renowned trumpet player, composer, arranger and educator. Now resident in North Wales, he spent the formative years of his career in London, as a jazz trumpeter with the BBC Big Band and John Dankworth Orchestra amongst others, and working on the London session scene where he recorded with top pop artists including Supergrass, Robbie Williams and Alison Moyet.
He has lectured in music at Leeds College of Music, Birmingham Conservatoire, Royal Northern College of Music and The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and his commissioned composition include an hour-long suite for brass called "Sketches of a Northern Town" and "Undivided"** - a suite for jazz orchestra and ceilidh band which premiered at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall as part of Celtic Connections 2015.
He is the winner of Arts Council Wales' Creative Wales Award 2012 and is Artistic Director of Llandudno Jazz Festival

The Chris Ingham Trio are one of the UK's leading rhythm sections. Described by Art Themen as "like being driven around in a Rolls Royce", the group which consists of pianist Chris Ingham, bassist Arnie Somogyi and drummer George Double are regulars at Ronnie Scott's club and have received high praise in both the national and specialist jazz press.

Mammal Hands

£15 in advance, £16 on the door. Concessionary tickets available.

We’re closing the festival with something very different. Young trio Mammal Hands have been hard at work touring internationally and recording a new album Shadow Work. They will perform a sensational finish.

Mammal Hands, (saxophonist Jordan Smart, pianist Nick Smart and drummer and percussionist Jesse Barrett), has carved out a refreshingly original sound from a disparate array of influences. Drawing on spiritual jazz, north Indian, folk and classical music to create something inimitably their own. They have forged their own path away from the musical mainstream and their unique sound grew out of long improvised rehearsals. All three members contribute equally to the writing process, one that favours the creation of a powerful group dynamic over individual solos. Their records are entrancing and beautiful affairs, while their hypnotic live shows have seen them hailed as one of the most exciting bands in Europe as they push their unique line-up to the outer limits of its possibilities.

Presented by IODS


Book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elise
Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa

Based on Characters Created by Charles Addams


The award winning IODS Theatre Company are thrilled to present the hilarious comedy musical The Addams Family.

Everyone's favourite kooky family are now on stage in an adaptation from the writers of multi award-winning hit musical Jersey Boys with music and lyrics by Tony nominated Andrew Lippa. The show features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents.

'Bouncing Back' follows a group of women returners to the game of Netball, the trials and tribulations of their training sessions, group bonding, getting sponsorship, tough coaching, and the stress of organising 'me time'.

'Hell hath no fury like three women scorned'

It's 2019, it's Time's Up Now! Yet for three young women in the city it still feels like the 1950s. But that's about to change when Cate walks into their lives and shows them what being a witch should be about.

All Hail Macbeth mixes comedy and high drama, with more than a little bit of magic, to tell the backstory of the Three Witches in Shakespeare's Macbeth.

A cross between Harry Potter, Macbeth and Top Girls, All Hail Macbeth has an all-female cast with a three-part harmony style group of singers, putting a retro twist on modern-day classics.
Packing Shed Theatre produces new writing by playwrights based in the Eastern Region performed by creatives also based in the East. All Hail Macbeth is their fourth show and follows a sell-out run in their hometown of Colchester last summer.

Courage Calls To Courage

New Wolsey Studio, St Georges Street, Ipswich, IP1 3NF

A few more details ...

Presented by Black & White Productions
Written by Suzanne Hawkes with music by William Stoddart

A drama interspersed with original music and songs of the time about the struggle for the vote between Emmeline Pankhurst’s Suffragettes and Millicent Fawcett’s Suffragists.

During the late 18th to early 19th C the fight for women’s right to vote was a long and protracted one in which many put their lives (some literally) and souls into winning.

But two women stand out as the leaders of the fight: Emmeline Pankhurst from Manchester and Millicent Garrett Fawcett from Aldeburgh in Suffolk.

Millicent and Emmeline were in many ways opposites and yet they both were working towards the same goal – not just the vote but equality for women. But would their rivalry prove the undoing of their national campaign and put an end to the dreams they both shared but wanted to achieve in very different ways?

The Lady In The Van

New Wolsey Theatre, Civic Drive, Ipswich, IP1 2AS

A few more details ...

Presented by Gallery Players

First a book, a play and then a film,The Lady in the Van tells the true story of Alan Bennett's strained friendship with Miss Mary Shepherd, an eccentric homeless woman whom Bennett befriended in 1974 before allowing her ‘temporarily’ to park her Bedford van in the driveway of his Camden home.

For Alan Bennett charity truly began at home but little did he know that she would remain there for fifteen years.
This wonderfully witty play centres on their extraordinary relationship, which for Bennett was a source of intrigue, frustration and compassion.

"One seldom was able to do her a good turn without some thoughts of strangulation”.

As Alan Bennett very candidly admits ,he and Miss Shepherd mutually benefited from her presence; he provided her with a safe haven while she acted as his muse, providing endless humorous material with her rude interactions with the outside world.

The story is funny, poignant and life affirming.

"One seldom was able to do her a good turn without some thoughts of strangulation”.

As Alan Bennett very candidly admits ,he and Miss Shepherd mutually benefited from her presence; he provided her with a safe haven while she acted as his muse, providing endless humorous material with her rude interactions with the outside world.

The story is funny, poignant and life affirming.

The Lady In The Van is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd. This is an amateur production presented as part of the New Wolsey’s annual Open Season. Find out more by browsing the Creative Learning section of our website.
