Music - Bands, Sun 12 Aug 2018, free entry


The Ipswich Hospital Band was formed 42 years ago from a small group of staff from Ipswich Hospital. Over the years the Band has developed into a busy working band and has raised thousands of pounds for local charities.

10 years ago we obtained a Heritage Lottery Grant to convert a local redundant church, St Peters by the Waterfront in Ipswich, into a rehearsal and concert venue. Each year we hold a Remembrance Concert, a Firefighters Charity Concert as well as a couple of smaller charity concerts. We also play at numerous outdoor engagements, including the Suffolk Show, Heveningham Hall, Marks Hall, Henham Steam Rally and many other local fetes, shows and fun days.

At Christmas the Band plays carols at several venues in and around the Ipswich area enabling us to donate around £3000 to a chosen local Charity each year.

The Band is delighted to be coming back to play at Gorleston again in 2018.
