Ipswich Regent Theatre

Offering a wide variety of high quality shows

If you’re after a great night out, you’ve found just the place! Ipswich Regent Theatre is one of the largest entertainment venues in the region, welcoming hundreds of thousands of visitors to watch touring shows each year.

With 90 years of history, East Anglia’s largest theatre remains the beating heart of unmissable live entertainment in Ipswich.

Seating over 1,500 people, this Grade II listed building provides a grand backdrop to a varied programme of comedy, music, dance, musicals and our popular annual pantomime – there’s not a bad seat in the house.

Monday 4th November 2019 marked 90 years since East Anglia’s largest theatre first opened its doors to the public. Since then, the Regent has hosted many of the world’s most iconic names in music, comedy and theatre including The Beatles, Bon Jovi, U2 and Tina Turner.

The Regent Theatre continues to host an incredible programme of touring shows, West End musicals, big-name comedians and much more. To ensure that the theatre remains at the forefront of Ipswich’s visitor economy for many years to come, we are committed to maintaining and improving the high-quality experience visitors expect.

In response to visitor feedback, plans for a significant refurbishment and development project to our front of house area to upgrade our toilet provision, venue accessibility and improved access to the bar areas plus restoration of some historic features are now being progressed.
