A diverse Ipswich community rallied for a “creative and joyous” celebration bringing “positivity” to a deprived neighbourhood.
Hundreds attended today’s Jubilee Park Roadshow to enjoy food, music and fun workshops.
Organised by Ipswich Community Media, the event featured 22 organisations, including charities and voluntary groups offering advice and information.
Visitors enjoyed graffiti workshops, skipping, beat-boxing, sports, the Freedom Sound System and more.
Ipswich Community Media’s Cad Taylor said the event went “extremely well”.

“The whole idea is about bringing a creative, joyous celebration and a host of activities to an area that often misses out,” she added.
“Westgate Ward is Ipswich’s most deprived community but there are lots of energetic, bombastic people here who want to make a difference.”
