Discover performances anywhere, when Anywhere Festival comes to Ipswich from 6-23 May.
Poets, comedians, musicians, theatre groups, circus performers, dancers and storytellers will take over Top of Town, Ipswich Central and local nooks and crannies to allow audiences a chance to discover performances anywhere but traditional theatre spaces.
The full Anywhere Theatre Ipswich program will be revealed on 26 March, 2021.

The Ipswich program of Anywhere Festival is co-funded by Ipswich City Council and the Regional Arts Development Fund.
The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Ipswich City Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
