Maritime Ipswich 2012

Categories: Special Events

Following on from the staggering success of last year, Maritime Ipswich is gracing the Waterfront once more. However, to make it bigger and better for 2012, Ipswich Central and Ipswich Borough Council have decided to create a whole two weeks of activity – Celebrate Ipswich – showcasing all that our county town has to offer.

Running from Monday 13th until Friday 24th August, the main focus of Celebrate will be Maritime Ipswich (Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th)). Full of festivities, family entertainment and the 30th annual Ipswich Beer Festival, it promises to delight and enthrall the crowds.

Celebrate Ipswich will feature two weeks of on-street entertainment, retail offers, food and drink discounts and even Maritime specific beauty offers such as seaweed wraps. There will be Mini Maritime Museums popping up all over town, with live music and dancing on the streets (featuring Ipswich’s Got Talent past contestants), transport promotions and special Blue Badge historic walks with afternoon ‘Maritea Time’ taking place also.
For 2012, Maritime Ipswich has already expanded towards the main town centre, with a weekend market and Food and Drink festival on Cromwell Square. But down on the Waterfront, there will be historical re-enactments, plenty of children’s entertainment (such as the Yo Ho Ho Pirate Show located on the UCS Plaza), vessel racing on the Marina, fairground rides and even the opportunity to come face to face with Cardinal Wolsey!

For more information about all the activities taking place during Celebrate Ipswich, please visit www.allaboutipswich.com
