Town Hall Anniversary

You are here

One of Ipswich’s most iconic buildings, the Town Hall, celebrates its 150th anniversary this year.

The present Town Hall was opened by the Mayor, John Patteson Cobbold, on 28th January 1868.

The town hall will host a public open day on Sunday 28th January 10am - 3pm, which will feature exhibitions, photographic display of the Town Hall and events through the years, historical costumes, traditional bread making, tours of the Mayor’s Parlour, a special twist to the annual Burn’s Supper . There will also be an opportunity to win a “community takeover” of part of the building.

Tea dances, guided walks, a Teddy Bear’s picnic and digitalised story-telling sessions are all planned as celebrations continue throughout the year.
