The announcement comes as schoolchildren across Ipswich are celebrating World Book Day - and it is also 100 days to go until Elmer’s Big Parade - Suffolk launches in the town.

To mark this exciting landmark in the trail campaign, the theatre is offering half-price tickets for the Elmer showings on Wednesday, August 14 to anyone dressed up for World Book Day.

You can visit the Ipswich Regent from 2pm until 4.30pm today to take advantage of this special promotion.

The show, which was created to celebrate Elmer’s 30th birthday, is coming to Ipswich as a one off, thanks to the efforts of the Elmer campaign team.

Norman Lloyd, campaign manager for Elmer’s Big Parade Suffolk, said: “We are thrilled that the producers of the Elmer Show have tweaked their schedules to bring the show to Ipswich.

“The whole town is already going Elmer mad and this is the cherry on the top for us.
