The Vikings are here!

Oh we do love to be beside the … Waterfront!

Yes, preparations are under way for the fabulous Ipswich Maritime Festival, which offers fun and frolics by the water on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th August.

The two days will be filled with music, historical re-enactments, a variety of vessels, street food, fairground rides, Punch & Judy, a range of stalls and children’s activities.

Entry to the Maritime Festival is free and a fully programmed stage of live music performances, a bar area, fire performers and a firework finale on the Sunday night (starting at 9.30pm or dusk) making it an event not to be missed.

Ipswich has a long and proud maritime history and this year the festival will take on a Viking theme based on the recapture of Ipswich from the Vikings 1100 years ago in 917AD.
