What to do over Easter



Easter is here and I think we can all agree that you never grow out of it (hello chocolate!) If you’re staying in Ipswich over the break, here are a few things you can do with your time (when you’re not revising, of course!)

Superbowl at Buttermarket

If you’re looking for a fun evening out with your friends, look no further. Superbowl Ipswich is opening at the end of March at the Buttermarket, with 12 bowling lanes, a ninja tag assault course, arcade and much more. It’s going to be incredibly popular when it opens, especially with us students, so make sure you get in there early!


You might have noticed that Ipswich is well-known for its arts and culture, especially with its wide range of theatres and cinemas. Over Easter, there will be plenty of shows and events going on.

The Ipswich Film Theatre also has regular showings of world and independent film releases, if you’re looking for something a bit different to do.

There’s a wide variety of dance shows, talks, and live plays for you to watch all over Ipswich and further into Suffolk, which always makes for an enjoyable evening!

The Framlingham Country Show

The Framlingham County Show is on the 7 - 8 April and is an event that can’t be missed. With displays, stalls, competitions, and much more, it’s sure to be a weekend to be enjoyed.

It’s always a unique show, with something for everyone, whether you want to watch the motorbike stunt team, world famous dog displays, or take a look at rural crafts. Book your tickets early; it’s one of the most popular events in Suffolk. 


From the seaside town of Felixstowe to the bustling city of Cambridge, there's plenty to explore within an hour of Ipswich. Take a trip to the beach, visit Go Ape in Thetford for some fun activities, hop on the train to London or explore local villages and towns, like the beautiful Woodbridge. 


Suffolk has so much to offer over Easter, whatever your interest. Have a look at what you can do during your time off, and make sure you enjoy yourself before getting back for the last half of the semester!
