Ipswich with its "vibrant music scene" will have a jazz festival this weekend.
The fifth Ipswich Jazz Festival will be held from Saturday to Sunday at St Peter’s by the Waterfront Arts Centre.
Organiser Neil Bateman, who is also welfare rights adviser, said Ipswich's "vibrant music scene is something we should be proud of".
Mr Bateman was "disappointed" that Covid-19 restrictions have not fully been relaxed but is happy they can do the festival this year.
The acts include award-nominated Byron Wallen’s Four Corners, who will play music from their album ‘Portrait: Reflections on Belonging’ and Tina May, British Jazz Awards's winner Enrico Tomasso and Chris Ingham who all perform as a trio.
Each performance costs just £10, with concessionary tickets for Ipswich residents available for those on low incomes at £1. Tickets can be bought via the festival website.
