Leanne Louise from Chelmsford is headlining an acoustic stage at the shopping centre on Friday with a 30 minute set, alongside performances by local acts across Friday and Saturday.

The event aims to welcome new students to the town, as well as giving local musicians a platform to perform to shoppers.

Sailmakers manager Mike Sorhaindo said: “This is a chance for up and coming artists to let a new audience hear their music. It’s also a great way to welcome new students to Ipswich and our stores will be offering plenty of student offers and promotions.
