FESTIVITIES kicked off in earnest this morning at The Evening Star offices in the heart of Ipswich.

We're celebrating 125 years of bringing the town all the hard-hitting news stories, campaigns and features.

BBC Radio Suffolk dropped into our Lower Brook Street headquarters for a slice of cake and a look back through the years at your Evening Star's fascinating history.

Breakfast Show host Mark Murphy spoke live to editor, Nigel Pickover, about the exciting day-to-day operation of a lively daily newspaper.

News editor Russell Cook took listeners through the news of the day and Josh Warwick gave an amusing take on the morning's papers.

We've received messages of good will and happy returns from local personalities and international luminaries but we also want to hear from you.
