Waterfront Live: Gig Guide

Graham Cleaver is a director of Ipswich Community Radio (ICRfm), where he presents the Monday Breakfast Show. Listen on 105.7fm, online, and the Radioplayer and Tune In apps.

Something for (almost) everyone in the first two months of 2019 at our Waterfront venues!  

The panto season is definitely not behind you (see what I did there?) at Dance East’s excellent Jerwood Dance Theatre:  Magpie’s ‘Cinderella’ plays there at the end of January, and the Landseer Players bring their ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ a month later. St Jo’s also visit the Jerwood with the fun musical ‘Hairspray’, while the ACCE welcome the Chinese New Year of the Pig on the 10th of January with the ninth year of their brilliant evening of performance and music.

St Peters begins a very busy 2019 with CBM theatre presenting two shows. ‘A Night at the Musicals’ plays for one night only, while the musical ‘The Last Five Years’ runs through the middle of February. CBM stands for ‘Can’t Beat Music’ – no need to say more!

Two promising jazz nights at St Peters, too, both featuring the excellent George Double (drums) and Chris Ingham (piano) in different settings – see the St Peters’ website or contact the venue for details.

With the brilliant John Adams from the Pogues style Waxies Dargle appearing at SB Victor’s folk night, and hardcore punk (The Stupids) and full on funk (Motherfvnker) both at the Steamboat, the new year has made a fine start!
