Free festive Thursday parking

Published4th November 2019

Christmas shoppers can keep a bit more of their money to spend on prezzies by taking up a free parking offer at Ipswich’s Crown car park.

The Borough Council-run multi-storey car park is bringing in a Festive Thursdays offer – free parking after 2pm on every late-night shopping Thursday.

The offer commences with the Christmas lights switch-on on 21st November and runs until 19th December.

Councillor Sarah Barber, portfolio-holder for the town centre, said: “This offer will help retailers and other businesses in the run-up to Christmas. Free parking after 2pm on these Thursdays will enable visitors heading to the town centre to shop, enjoy a meal or go to the theatre and keep a little extra for buying their festive treats.”
