The BID also said in an email to its members that the first of the town's late night shopping events will take place on the same evening.
Many shops will stay open until 9pm every Thursday in the run-up to Christmas to give shoppers a chance to get their gifts after work.
Ipswich Central also said it plans to promote the work of independent stores during the festive season, for example by highlighting some of the best window displays.
