Upgrading a ticket for today?
at 11:47 1 Apr 2024

Hey! My daughter isn’t well enough to attend today however the ticket office is closed on the phone number so I can’t upgrade it to an adult ticket. What’s the best thing to do? Is the physical office going to be open today?
Any help would be appreciated.
What game to watch this evening folks?
at 19:01 28 Feb 2024 ?!

Who’s watching what game if any this evening?

Tempted just to watch Inter vs Atalanta, but thinking of Cheski vs Leeds.

Hmmmm …. Obviously we want Leeds to go to extra time, but do we want them to win?!

St Stephens Church open for beers today
at 10:21 10 Feb 2024

Hex Record shop is open today 10-4 in St Stephens Church opposite Wagamama.
They will have the bar open for some low key drinks - there’s Ghostship, Ease Up, Kobold, Wild Wave, Dry Hop & Mosaic on tap for £5 a pint 👍👍 no rum or vodka today as the metal heads drank the lot last night!

We’ll be open properly in a couple of months so hope to be putting lots of events on there during that daytimes soon.

I sadly am off to Norwich to do an escape room for my daughter’s birthday. 🙄 will have my blue action T-shirt on ready to cause a scene in Bella Italia👌
Pre match pubs - more needed?
at 17:00 14 Aug 2023

Hi TWTD'ers

I'm doing a bit of research of our fanbase to see if we should look at opening our music venues for match days.

With our home attendances being towards the 'sell out' capacity for the forceable future... do we need more choice of boozers before and possibly after the game?

I'm asking as we have two venues that we could open up for pre/post game beers, most probably just on Saturdays but possibly for pre-evening game pints.

These are St Stephen's Church opposite Wagamama and The Baths on Civic Drive. ( for more info)

Bar taps are all Adnams and we can look at getting snacks/food as well. Both are in great locations and possibly The Baths could be a great post game pint as it's pretty big (up to 300 standing) and has two bars.

Do you think there is a need? Sometimes enjoy going to The Brewers, Greyhound and Arbour house...I don't tend to venture out of those on match days.

Would you be happy to have it open to families?

Would you be happy with away fans too?

- any other ideas or suggestions are much welcome. DJ's, live music, meat raffle, life drawing....haha.

I'd like ideally for both venues to be as inclusive as possible and have a great friendly atmosphere with DJs or a curated playlist playing. I'd like for my 11 year old daughter to go before the games, have a pie and pint (of orange juice and lemonade) whilst I have a crisp Mosaic, in a nice relaxed venue full of good people having a good time.

Maybe the demand would be blokes only, home fans only, blaring out Sweet Caroline on repeat!? I don't know, hence the ask. haha.

Let me know your thoughts as it's something we're not used to doing and need to work out what the opening costs would be/if it's viable. I imagine licensing would want us to have a couple of security on at all times sadly.

Thanks all, any input/thoughts are appreciated.


Brighten The Corners 24 - super early bird tickets
at 18:56 18 Jul 2023

Shameless music festival plug.

We’ve got 50 tickets left on our super early bird price left for June 2024 festival - £30… madness.

I know a good group from here went to last months festival and I’m so grateful for that.

Hope you can bag yourselves a bargain and see you there for pints and the discovery of your new favourite band!

Swailsy and DubT, get on it 😂👍💪
Away Days Beer fest @ The Baths

Anyone else heading down today for some pre game beers?
Better than warm Green King and fosters 👍👍
Pre-game drinks & free music this weekend!
at 18:07 9 Mar 2022

First up, what a great performance all round yesterday. I was spellbound by Aluko at points...that player has some serious skills.

Onwards to selfless promo....

This weekend we're opening up St Stephen's Church opposite Wagamama on Friday night and Saturday daytime for free live music and nice booze. We're restricted to 110 people due to fire exit dimensions, however it will be a load of fun.

I thought it could make a good pre-game drinking hole too pre-Portsmouth? We're open from 11:30 (music from 12) on Sat until 6pm with an Adnams bar....Kobold, Ghostship, Mosaic and Wild Wave on tap. SUDS (12), Soundscape Green (1pm) and Bessie Turner (2pm) should be possible to watch before KO.

We'd love to do more link ups with TWTD/ITFC/Blue Action when we get our hands fully on the keys from Jan next year. We hosted a KOA podcast from The Smokehouse once so I'm sure something like that will happen again soon.

Live music in Ippy next week - Andy Bell/Field Music/Orilles
at 09:08 27 Jan 2022

Hi Town music lovers!

Next week we're hosting 4 nights of live music brining more established artists to Ipswich for Independent Venue Week. We're hosting them all in The Baths rather than at The Smokehouse so there's more room to move around in, hide from Covid (it can't go around corners) etc!

It's great to put more established artists on after Sound City and we're trying our best to pilot venues like The Baths & St Stephens to see if there's a market out stop us having to go to N****ch and other places to see live music.

I hope some people on this wonderful board are going, if not, take a look below at some of the bands and tickets are grabbable from !

Hope to see some of you there! Soz for shameless plug.

Playlist of upcoming artists -

The Orielles

Roscoe Roscoe

Anna's Bones (with 2/5s of Superglu now in the band)

Andy Bell's Space Station (Ride guitarist/singer & ex-Oasis/Beady Eye)

Under The Sun (Local Shoegaze/noise pop artist)

Esme Emerson (Local lo-fi pop)


Girls of The Internet (band and then DJing till 1.30am)

Support from Nemone (6 Muisc DJ)


Field Music (support from Susan Bear)

Gutted I can't go but am going the day before for the Grand Prix/Songs from Northern Britain night.

Cheers all ... back to the game....

Xmas Indie Gig on 16th December at The Smokehouse.....
at 22:40 8 Dec 2017

Evening fellow blues....

On Sat 16th there is a gig in town at The Smokehouse if you fancy an evening of alternative indie jangly guitar music!?

I'm aware that there's the superb gig with Darkseed and Kings of Leon Smith going on at Venue 77 (as pinned to the board) that evening and we're not out to compete with these wonderful people (including some good friends of mine). The reason for me posting is to say that if you can't go to the Venue 77 gig and if you want to come to The Smokehouse, we are giving 100% of our door and bar profits over to their cause 'Rock for Toni' (St Elizabeth Hospice). As we're 98% volunteer run that going to be pretty much all the takings!

Bands/Artists include Jack Rundell, Hillmisters, Radio Orwell and Sun Scream. Doors at 7.30pm £5 entry including a free drink. All profits to 'Rock for Toni' / St Elizabeth Hospice. Hurrahhh.

Our Facebook event (and links to bands) is here:
Donations if you can't get to either gig can be found here:

Thanks for having a peep. Up the town.
