Ipswich Pulse Festival, which brings innovative art productions to the town, is to be sponsored by Felixstowe-based Harrison C White Group for the next two years.

Returning for its 17th year, this 10 day festival offers a bright and inspiring snapshot of contemporary theatre with established and emerging artists, both local and those from further afield.

Building on previous Pulse Festivals, this year’s programme carries on the successes of Suitcase Prize Day and Scratch Day with new work from returning companies, and even more high quality theatre coming from around the UK and abroad.

Colin Kreidewolf, Director of HCW, said: “We are excited to be sponsoring the PULSE Festival as it brings some diverse and interesting acts to Ipswich over the coming days. The 10-day festival gives performers a platform to showcase new work by regional, British and International artists across many forms.

“I hope to be able to get to as many of the shows as possible and would say to everyone why not come along and try out some of the shows. There will be a variety of thought provoking, amusing and entertaining shows, something for everyone.”
