If you are looking for something to do on a sunny summer afternoon then Ipswich High School’s summer fete may be for you. This annual event is being held in the beautiful grounds of Woolverstone Hall on Saturday, June 23. The fete is open to all and admission is free.
This year the school is celebrating being at Woolverstone Hall for 25 years. The organisers are promising that the fete will feature lots of fun, food and entertainment. A variety of local craft stalls attend and their wares will appeal to the whole family. The afternoon includes amongst many things a barbecue, Pimms tent, fairground rides, bouncy castle, rugged racers, archery, face painting, ice cream, and pony rides. There will also be some entertainment performed by the pupils, sporting displays, a tombola and Ipswich car dealership Marshall Kia will also be showing off their latest models.
The fete takes place between noon and 3pm and is organised by the Ipswich High School Association, the PTA of Ipswich High School. Erica Bryan, who is helping to organise the event, said: “We’ve built on the success of previous years and just added a few additions which we hope will appeal to all ages. We would really love our friends on the peninsula to come along and join in the summer fun. Woolverstone Hall is a stunning location and the fete gives the peninsula the chance to come and enjoy the hall and the truly wonderful landscape.”
Visitors can expect to have a fun-packed afternoon with a chance to win some exciting prizes in the grand raffle.
