THESE colourful images celebrate the beginning of the hotly anticipated Ip-Art festival.

Opened on Monday on Ipswich's Cornhill, the Colourdome has been described as the “most magnificent experience we take for granted”.

We caught the moment as youngsters from Handford Hall and St Matthew's primary schools took part in the opening ceremony and passed through its coloured tunnels and chambers.

With a host of events planned across the town Ip-Art runs until July13.

Tonight Christchurch Park hosts an outdoor production by Heartbreak Productions of William Shakespeare's classic comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream.

A spokesman for Ip-Art said: “This radical modern production set on the estate of a stately home is filled with the heartbreak hallmarks of live music, masks, magic tricks and a heart stopping rendition of the tango.”

Other events being held in Christchurch Park include Ipswich Music day on Sunday and an Indian Summer Mela on Sunday, July 13.
