Ipswich: Billy’s back... with chart-topping friends

Another four top acts have been added to an already busy summer schedule of live music at Ipswich’s Christchurch Park.

Billy Ocean, Jocelyn Brown, Soul II Soul and the Gibson Brothers will be performing classic tracks live on stage as part of a Club Classics Concert in Christchurch Park on Saturday, July 9.

Katherine Jenkins and Peter Andre had already been confirmed to appear a week apart this July.

This third event, in conjunction with promoter Envy Productions UK Ltd and Heart fm, is the latest concert taking place in Christchurch Park as part of Ip-art 2011.

Andrew Cann, Culture portfolio-holder, said: “We had a great summer of concerts in Ipswich last year and it’s certainly our intention to continue to develop events in the town and also to bring in top acts for the people of Ipswich, Suffolk and East Anglia to enjoy.”
