A new art gallery has opened in Ipswich with the aim of giving lesser known artists the recognition they deserve.

Subterranean Boulevard, based above Loveone in St Peter’s Street, was the idea of Paul Fisk who was also behind last year’s The Festival of the Beats.

There will be an ongoing exhibition of work by local and international artists as well an array of artist’s portfolios, many who exclusively exhibit with the gallery.

Mr Fisk said: “Since we held the beats festival we’ve continued to run regular exhibitions at Ipswich town hall, which include regular Vagabonds Lounges, where we welcome performers of all abilities to share their talents. We’ve introduced local young people to the arts and enabled them to discover their own abilities as artists.

“Now we’ve been very fortunate to be offered the opportunity to open our own art gallery. Subterranean Boulevard gives me the opportunity to exhibit art I feel needs to be shared with the world, by artists who are extremely talented but for some under recognised”.

The gallery hosts its first solo exhibition at the end of February, displaying work by Ipswich-born artist Dale Mann who has exhibited nationally but never in his home town.

Cathy Frost, who owns and runs artisan gift shop Loveone, added: “I’ve been sharing my upstairs space with a variety of talented individuals over the last seven years. I’ve known Paul for a number of years and am thrilled to be working with him. The art works he selects to exhibit complements the artisan products we already sell.”

Subterranean Boulevard is also the hub for Mr Fisk’s company, Midnight City Junk, which will oversee the development of the next Festival of the Beats in April 2016.

The gallery is open 10am-5pm, Tuesday-Saturday or other times by appointment. To contact Mr Fisk about the gallery or the next beats festival, email Midnightcityjunk@btinternet.com or call 07858 738080.

The Screen Suffolk deal which aims to bring film and TV productions to the county was officially launched at an exhibition in London on Tuesday night.

Naughty elves have been holding toys captive, redecorating Christmas trees and swinging from the lampshades over the past week.

The Colchester Mercury has a well deserved reputation for staging some of the most lavish traditional pantomimes in East Anglia.

There were no dancing cups and saucers, singing clocks or candelabra hosts but who needs the Disney sparkle when you have the true magic of panto?

One of the country’s biggest music stars, Olly Murs, has been named as a headline act for the 2017 Newmarket Nights summer concert series.

Christchurch Mansion, Fore Street Swimming Pool and the Town Hall are just a handful of Ipswich’s prestigious buildings set to be opened up for filming as part of the Screen Suffolk deal under latest plans by town bosses.

Inspired snappers in Kesgrave enjoyed the summer sun and braved the wintry weather to share their stills in the latest Kesgrave Photography Competition.

For a man who reckons he drifted into advertising and public relations without knowing much about it, Bob Cattell hasn’t done badly. We’d all be pretty chuffed to have altered course slightly and ended up selling more than 250,000 children’s books, wouldn’t we?

The Ipswich Co-op Juniors certainly know how to stage a spectacle and this year’s festive extravaganza is as glitzy and glamorous – and as technically accomplished – as anything you would see on a West End stage.

When the weather outside is as cold as it has been in Suffolk and Essex over the past few days, the temptation can be to stay at home over the weekend and take up residence in front of the TV.
