Another weekend in Ipswich, another great weekend of music. More than 50,000 people will pack into Christchurch Park for tomorrow’s Ipswich Music Day – and it’s all free.

The Ipswich Borough Council event, a staple of the Ip-Art Festival, runs from noon to 8pm and is chance to see old favourites and perhaps future stars with Framlingham’s Ed Sheeran’s breakthrough coming soon after appearing there four years ago.
