Bonfire night and a ballroom dancing festival are among the highlights in today's Throwback Thursday feature as we look back at a busy time in Ipswich 35 years ago.
In 1984, Christchurch Park was the focus for two annual events and Ipswich Star photographers captured the moment the bonfire was lit as crowds gathered to watch the Guy being hoisted onto the flames, and a few days later the poignant Remembrance wreath-laying.
