    Ipswich Maritime Festival 2017: Fireworks

    by dan5 in TourismAug 20, 2017 with 0 replies and 23 views.

    The main event over the two days is of course the fireworks spectacular finale! 74hm9uWR-gACdg8w2A8aF4The above are the first two full versions uploaded to YouTube - more may follow, but that will do! So, I must comment... fireworks were good. I don't know why they don't utilise more of the island site to gave a little more width - maybe a metre or two either side. :D I think many people would leave and felt it was a good event. This...

    170 Years Of Ipswich Museums

    The deadline for the Ipswich Museums/Ipswich Borough Council "Take Over Ipswich Museums" competition has passed. Ipswich Ltd has submitted an application for an ambitious celebration of Ipswich Heritage. We emailed [email protected] on Tuesday for an application form - without reply. Luckily we found an printed application form this morning which we scanned in, populated with text and emailed over! Whats the plan?With only space...

    Ipswich Festive Market

    by dan5 in TourismJul 14, 2017 with 4 replies and 57 views.

    The "Ipswich Festive Market" last year was extremely disappointing - despite promising to be better than ever.Earlier this year, I wrote to David Ellesmere at Ipswich Borough Council to suggest he allowed a consortium of businesses and the community to organise a special event - something which Ipswich Borough Council and Ipswich Central are incapable of doing. This has fell on deaf ears, with no further action taken. Maybe he took...

    Latest reply: It would be great - it would save the town centre. When you are a town that isn't really known for anything in recent times, plenty of opportunities to create events that become well known across the country. I actually think it is part of a...

    Tourism: Essential To Ipswich

    by Ipswich in TourismJul 10, 2017 with 1 replies and 51 views.

    An article from Ipswich Society:- http://www.ipswichsociety.org.uk/newsletter/newsletter-july-2017-issue-208/tourism-essential-to-ipswich/Heritage tourism is a vital part of the UK economy. In 2015, domestic and international tourists made 192 million trips to visit the UK’s cultural, historic and natural assets. They spent £17.5 billion while doing so. ‘Heritage tourism’ encompasses heritage attractions, such as castles, galleries and...

    Latest reply: Exactly what I am getting at (with focus on Anglo Saxon history etc)... they say heritage tourism... I call it traditional tourism or simply tourism. How dare Ipswich Central and Greater Ipswich DMO promote a one-day leisure get-away when we...

    Rebuild Ipswich West Gate?

    by dan5 in TourismJul 8, 2017 with 5 replies and 166 views.

    Is it about time we rebuilt some (or one) of Ipswich's historical gates for tourism purposes?This is something I have been wanting to explore for some time but hitting a brick-wall with no real representation of what any of the three main gates looked like (east gate, west gate and north gate)... until I stumbled across a post on Ipswich Society's facebook page containing a picture of the replica West Gate built for the Golden Jubilee in...

    Tourism is worth £220m to the local economy BBC Look East

    by wrightie in TourismMay 10, 2017 with 5 replies and 72 views.

    I don't know if anyone saw it but I thought it was worth sharing. Love the titles they use though, Ipswich Destination Organisation Management.A new report says that tourism is worth £220m to the local economy, and it predicts that figure could grow by £65m within three years. The findings come at a critical time for the town, tonight its playing host to officials from some of the biggest tourist attractions in the country....

    Latest reply: A follow up propaganda article...The Celebrating Ipswich conference at Trinity Park was organised by the town’s new Destination Management Organisation (DMO), Ipswich Central and the University of Suffolk to bring together hotels, leisure based...

    by dan5 in TourismMay 8, 2017 with 2 replies and 44 views.

    Ipswich Star is reporting Suffolk Show in top 15 UK events for May 2017 by HolidayLettings.co.uk, owned by TripAdvisor, when we looked at the site we found an unordered list including Suffolk Show on a blog post.The annual two-day extravaganza has been chosen by UK rental giants HolidayLettings.co.uk, owned by TripAdvisor, as one of the top 15 events in May across the UK.Saskia Welman, a spokesman at HolidayLettings.co.uk, said: “Regarded...

    Latest reply: Indeed it is a poorly put together blog, TripAdvisor bought up the independent website business and let them get on with it. I am sure there is someone in the office that just focuses on doing some blog content and contacting all local press in...

    Ipswich 2020 Enterprise Island

    by dan5 in TourismMay 3, 2017 with 1 replies and 40 views.

    This is a propaganda video unleashed on the Ipswich public shortly before the 2015 General Election which saw Ben Gummer re-elected.DR0jAS4z0z4As you can tell, the actual proposed Upper Orwell Crossing design is nothing like the designs revealed to public in the past - not limited to just this video. Another case of get the public interested, then modify the details with a Plan B.

    Latest reply: We are beyond half-way through 2017... there is no chance "Enterprise Island" would be ready in 2020 - not even the beginning of that pie-in-the-sky project. No money allocated for the construction of buildings on the island and no plans. Nothing...

    Ipswich: shabby and rundown cesspit hell hole

    by Ipswi in TourismApr 25, 2017 with 3 replies and 52 views.

    Just over 5 years ago Ipswich callers phoned up a BBC Radio Suffolk breakfast show presented by current Ipswich Central chairman Terry Baxter to give their views on the town. Ben Gummer MP was shocked and angered over people commented on how "shabby and rundown" the town is with others going to extremes calling it a "cesspit" and "hell hole". Naturally the politicians didn't listen to the concerns and discarded comments as from a few negative...

    Latest reply: Even with the controversial Cornhill project, this won't improve the state of the rest of the town centre.Unfortunately, none of the town's elite will listen to taxpayers and voters... it needs to be a well respected or well-known outsider to...

    Ipswich is a real tourist hotspot

    by dan5 in TourismApr 25, 2017 with 2 replies and 32 views.

    Ipswich is moving up in the world:-So we can expect roughly 3 visitors instead of 2. That should boost the economy! planemanIpswich Star has hailed again... oh my, I hate that phrase... you hail a taxi or dodge the bad weather. Too many news articles using that phrase now.National Express coach operator May weekend bookings are up 49%. That is all, more endless PR for National Express.Previously, Top 10 Easter (coach) destination.

    Latest reply: haha, I couldn't agree more. Why is the Ipswich Star even bothering with them?!I am sure National Express has got involved with Ipswich Central and its just propaganda... after all, there are elections coming up!
