The John Peel Centre for Creative Arts (JPC) has revealed its April line-up as part of the drive to get the people of Suffolk back out to live entertainment.
The programme of events ranges from award-winning stand up-comedy and touring theatre productions to folk gigs, indie nights and live hip-hop, at the centre in Stowmarket.
Programming manager, Iain Lowery, said: "Attending live events hasn’t been at the top of everyone’s priority list over the last couple of years and really we have all been doing our best to avoid such things, but now as restrictions are lifted and life begins to get back to normal we hope that people will feel more confident in attending and sharing venue spaces with other members of the local community and rediscovering their love of live music, comedy and theatre."
April's events kicks off on Sunday April 3, with JP comedy night, featuring award-winning stand-up comedians Pierre Novellie, Kai Samra and Travis Jay.
On Saturday April 9, Lazy Habits and Chrome & Illinspired will be performing live New Orleans jazz inspired soul/hip-hop.
Two folk/acoustic acts, Reg Meuross and Harbottle & Jonas will be taking to the stage on Thursday April 14.
On Sunday, April 17, indie singer-songwriter and former member of The Icicle Works, Ian McNabb, will be performing his new material.
