About the Ipswich Star

About the Ipswich Star

For more than 125 years the Ipswich Star has been at the heart of your community.

Our team pride themselves on being first for local news, sport and entertainment.

Online, in print, on mobile and via social media, we bring you the latest updates on what is happening in both Ipswich and Felixstowe and provide the perfect vehicle for local businesses to advertise their services.

We take a campaigning stance, backing you in your battles for fairness and openness, and support the many good causes that are working to make Ipswich a better place to live, work and visit.

The Star brings you first-class coverage from Portman Road, and regular reports from The Ipswich Witches as well as daily updates on what is happening at the many entertainment venues around the two towns.

From its first edition in February 1885 the Star has always put you, our loyal readers, first - and still does so every day.
