Comedy, music and fashion were among the attractions as Ipswich staged an arts festival.
The event took place back in 1983 and the programme of activities included a day of open-air entertainment outside the Town Hall on the Cornhill.
An Ipswich Star photographer went along to capture some of the performances - which were witnessed by a large crowd enjoying the fun.
