Dear Ipswich, We would like to invite you to the Switch 'One Day Free' Fringe Festival taking place this Saturday 4th October at The Steamboat, 11am till 11pm, free entry! Join us as we celebrate the creative & cultural talent of our home town, alongside the regional début of the hilarious stand up poetry show 'Pete The Temp Vs Climate Change' at 7pm.
For the past two years we have run 16 day Switch Fringe Festivals, taking place in multiple venues, with up to 40 events taking place all over the town. This year due to lack of resources we've holding this 12 hour event to invite you see Ipswich through our eyes, meet the talented folk we love to put on, and maybe even to join the Fringe team for 2015?
Our primary purpose is to raise the profile of the Ipswich Creative Community. We support promoters and musicians by exposing their work to new audiences, and we have a particular expertise and passion for spoken word, in all its forms. We also work with closely with local venues, supporting them to host quality live and original performances. In the future we would like to help local musicians, artists and event staff access advice and resources to aid them into a full time career in the Arts.
