A History of Refugees in Ipswich, 8th March 2018, 13:00 to 14:00 at Museum Street Methodist Church, Black Horse Lane, Ipswich (19.2 miles)
Over the centuries, Ipswich has become home to many different groups of refugees from around the world, from the Huguenots of the late 17th century to Basque refugee children and more recent arrivals fleeing persecution and conflict in countries such as Iraq and Syria. This talk aims to reveal the fascinating history of refugees in Ipswich, the mark they have left on the town, and the work of Suffolk Refugee Support in helping our refugee communities.
Admission is free with a retiring collection to defray expenses. Donations of at least two pounds per head are valued to maintain the series. Tea and coffee are served from 12.30pm.
Sweetshop Revolution's International Women's Day Talk, 8th March 2018, 18:00 at DanceEast, Jerwood Dance House, Foundry Lane, Ipswich (19.5 miles)
Sally Marie will be talking and inviting discussion on women's experiences of relationships across the last 300 years. Drawing on her research into women and sexuality, which has formed the basis of her new work BeautifuL, this discussion coincides with both International Women's Day and the centenary of women winning the vote.
Audiences are invited for a free glass of wine and a chance to hear some of Sally Marie's discoveries, with the opportunity for questions and a chance to share your own perspectives.
Open to all.
BeautifuL , 9th March 2018, 19:30 at DanceEast, Jerwood Dance House, Foundry Lane, Ipswich (19.5 miles)
Following a sell-out performance in 2016, Sally Marie's company Sweetshop Revolution returns to the Jerwood Dancehouse with a brand new piece of dance theatre.
BeautifuL encompasses movement and text, exploring love and sexuality from the point of view of women; what is fantasised about, desired and permissible within the complex web of social structures, expectations and cultural history.
Extraordinary dancers will lead us through their own experience of sexuality and love, and this is contrasted with an exploration of the history of women's sexuality over the last three hundred years.
This piece, along with looking at gender, will also be celebrating the solidarity of woman, taking femininity to a more truthful place, past the gloss of media spin and pressure to conform. BeautifuL is a doorway into a dialogue about how women and men are experiencing relationships, sexuality and the body right now. And at the heart of it lies a question: how do we love and how has it changed?
Ipswich Remembers, 17th March 2018 at Ipswich Corn Exchange, , Ipswich (19.2 miles)

The multi-award winning Mark Bruce Company presents a striking dance theatre adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth, a tragic descent into the darkest sides of human nature.
Goaded by the whispers of demons, the Macbeths (Jonathan Goddard, Eleanor Duval) unleash murder for their own gains and set in motion their path to madness and self-destruction, unravelling events in a nightmare they cannot control.
With a cast of nine and designed by the creative team that brought audiences Dracula and The Odyssey, this production realises a beautifully harrowing vision of an internal wasteland formed from the pursuit of power through ruthless means.
