Trinity Park will host 12 films in four days at the end of the month as it hosts a new Drive In/Outdoor Movie event and also welcomes back a popular antiques and vintage previously postponed because of the pandemic.
Both events are being staged by promoter Gary Sheridan, who says he is looking to help restore some normality into people’s lives following months of restrictions and lockdown.
He is also trying to raise some money to help deserving causes.
He said: “We are proud to be supporting local charity Suffolk Community Foundation’s Rebuilding Lives Appeal as our local charity partner in Suffolk.
“It is hoped the Rebuilding Local Lives Appeal will deliver more local giving to the Suffolk Coronavirus Community Fund, which has been created and delivered by the Foundation. When you purchase a ticket to the event on SEE Tickets there will be an option to donate £1-10.”
The drive-in movies will be a mix of popular dramas like The Joker, family favourites like Toy Story 4 and classic feelgood sing-alongs like Grease, The Greatest Showman and Bohemian Rhapsody.
Visitors will have a choice of socially distanced outdoor pods as well as regular drive in spaces.

The movies will run from Thursday September 24 until Sunday September 27. Tickets are available from Sunset Drive-in website.
The Antiques & Vintage Event at Trinity Park was due to celebrate its 10th anniversary earlier this year but was cancelled because of lockdown.
To celebrate its new date, admission to this restaged event will be free.
Mr Sheridan said: “Like many businesses, antiques events and all the dealers who make a living from them have been at a standstill.
“We can’t wait to return and show the people of Ipswich what they have been missing.”
The Antiques & Vintage Market will return on September 26-27 with dealers from all over the country.
There will be socially distanced sellers inside and outside the building.
