Fans of comedy and musicals in particular are spoilt for choice at the Ipswich Regent and Corn Exchange over the coming months.
The full spring-summer line-up is revealed in the venues’ latest brochure, which is being included in tomorrow’s Ipswich Star.
Bryony Rudkin, Ipswich Borough Council’s culture and leisure portfolio-holder, said: “I’m delighted we’ll be putting on such a great programme in the coming months. From West End shows to top rated comedians and world class orchestras – we’ve got it all.
“Personally I can’t wait for Marc Almond and Hairspray.”
Michael McIntyre is road-testing new material ahead of his forthcoming arena tour and Take Me Out host Paddy McGuinness stages his first stand-up show since 2011.
