Ipswich, a new chapter is about to begin …

Come and join us

On Saturday 28 November 2020, stage two of the new Nicholas Street Precinct will be revealed, with the official opening of Tulmur Place, your new civic plaza, as well as the Handmade Expo Markets.

This is the first of many exciting, community events you can expect to see in your Nicholas Street Precinct.

The switch will also be flicked on the fun new water play zone – the perfect way to entertain your kids in the shade throughout our long, hot summer.

The following Saturday 5 December, Nicholas Street will welcome back the Future Flavours Food Fair food truck event, with live, family-friendly entertainment all night.

The new Ipswich Central Library will officially open its doors to the public on Monday 7 December.

And this is just the beginning!

The Ipswich City Council Nicholas Street Precinct team has been working hard on a program of family-friendly events to keep little ones, and big ones, entertained each and every day between Saturday 28 November and Sunday 20 December 2020.

Watch this space for the full events calendar, to be launched very soon!

Will you join us?

The team has been busy planning the first seven months of festivals, events, activities, concerts and expos for the precinct, with the local community at the heart of each and every initiative.

We want to show you just how fabulous your Nicholas Street Precinct is going to be, and how quickly it will become your favourite place to visit in the city.

But for this, we need your help.

We’re looking for local businesses and residents to help us to activate the precinct. After all, it’s your Nicholas Street!
