If so, then the Ipswich Regent has the power to make those dreams a reality with their online streaming events this autumn.

All these ‘evenings with’ star names can be beamed live into your homes having been booked with the Ipswich Regent. The star attraction of this new collection of events has to be the opportunity to be entertained by Oscar-winner and self-confessed pickle expert Matthew McConaughey.

Matthew McConaughey has kept a diary for 35 years and recently revisited his notes and observations about his life and growing up to pen a memoir about his early life and career.

McConaughey discovered not only stories, questions and truths about his life, but also a reliable theme: an approach to living that he calls ‘catching greenlights’.

This will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend an evening with one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors, as he explores his adventures revealing what he describes as ‘my sights and seens, felts and figured outs, cools and shamefuls.’

Also offering an insight into his world is cricketing legend and TV personality Freddie Flintoff. The TV star will be celebrating the publication of his new book Right, Said Fred, which he describes as an escape from lockdown – ‘a much-needed Bible of straight-talking honesty and sharp observational humour.’ Meanwhile, Dick and Angel Strawbridge will be sharing the fun as well as the harsh realities of their Escape to the Chateau and life in rural France. How easy is it to restore a derelict castle on a tiny budget?
