Remember the days before lockdown when you could go out with friends and enjoy a gig?

Remember how you could get lost in the music and discover a new favourite local band? Do you have any pictures of those wonderful nights? Did you capture any local bands taking flight on stage? 

If so, then the Ipswich Arts Centre would love to hear from you as they are on the hunt for photos taken at any Ipswich gig to include as part of a new community project.

It’s not just local bands, lots of great acts came to play in Ipswich when it was on the national circuit for rising artists. Did you catch any soon-to-be great names playing Ipswich before they were famous?

If you have any live performance pictures taken at Ipswich gigs that you would like to share then get in touch with Ipswich Arts Centre through IAC Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ipswichartcentre or email ipswichartscentre@gmail.com.
