To whet your appetite for the Ipswich Regent and Corn Exchange spring-summer brochure, out this week, we can reveal Pop Idol star Gareth Gates and Britain’s Got Talent winners Ashleigh and Pudsey are coming to town.
Multi-million record selling Gates is playing Willard in a new production of Footloose – The Musical, coming to the Regent on October 3-8.
Based on the Kevin Bacon film, it’s the story of city boy Ren who has to move to a rural backwater in America where dancing is banned.
He’ll be joined by chart-topper turned stage actress Maureen Nolan as Vi.
Your mission on July 23-24, should you choose to accept it, is to join Ashleigh and Pudsey for Mission ImPUDSEYble.
The interactive family spy adventure pits the K9 Intelligence Agents against their arch nemesis Dr Feline and his acrobatic cat-burglars. Help them find clues, break codes and solve puzzles as they Riverdance in Ireland, battle with Russia’s Meerkat division and tackle a deadly assault course.
“Our new brochure highlights lots of exciting shows coming to the Regent and the Corn Exchange. There really is something for everyone – from week-long West End shows like The Sound of Music, Cats and Annie to comedy specials like Sarah Millican,” said councillor Bryony Rudkin, Ipswich Borough Council’s culture and leisure portfolio holder.
