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.
The Regent Theatre Ipswich opened in 1929 as a cine-variety hall. At 7pm on Monday 4th November, the entrance doors of the new Regent Theatre Ipswich opened and into its spacious foyer crowded nearly 2,000 Ipswich people who had come to witness this momentous occasion.
Since then, the Regent Theatre has hosted many of the world’s most iconic names in music, comedy and theatre including The Beatles, Bon Jovi, U2 and Tina Turner.
Today, they host a diverse programme of events including smash-hit musicals – often direct from the West End – live music from iconic artists, stand-up comedy, ballet, opera, family shows, dance and, of course, their popular annual pantomime.
Ipswich Regent Theatre offers a wide range of early bird and multibuy discounts across most of their shows. Often, the earlier you book, the lower the prices. £15 tickets are available for every visiting musical and pantomime prices start from just £14, even on Christmas Eve.
Full pricing details are listed individually on each show page and concessionary discounts are highlighted where available.
