Suffolk Sounds

A New Look Music Festival For The Local Area

Inspired by “Martlesham Music on The Green” & “Kesgrave Music Day” 

Preparations for the first SUFFOLK SOUNDS family music day (Saturday 2 September 2017) are well under way. The committee looked back at the success of Martlesham’s Music on the Green and the Kesgrave Music Day and were inspired by these events. 

Chris Bones, Chairman, commented “We are so thrilled to have a new music day back in the Ipswich area. We believe that this will be the largest weatherproof festival in the locality. Our ethos is “Inspiring Music and encouraging Youth performing Music.”

SUFFOLK SOUNDS will be held in a covered venue at Trinity Park, Ipswich so, no matter what the weather holds, the show will go on. 

Our aim is to become firmly established on the East Anglian music scene and will pride ourselves in being one of the few events to encourage local youth bands; giving them the opportunity to perform alongside more established acts, using professional sound equipment and engineers. 

This provides a wonderful first exposure to a host of new talent as we believe that it is extremely important to encourage today’s youth performing at music events.

The festival is predominantly aimed at providing a platform for a charity to benefit and we have chosen EACH – East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice to receive the proceeds from this year’s event.

Chris added “This is a wonderful local charity that we are proud to support. We really want to give back to the community, to give them what they miss. A live music day is just that! The Kesgrave and Martlesham events both stopped a couple of years ago and the demand in the local area is astonishingly high. We will do our best to give them that special day back again.”

Suffolk Sounds is a constituted body and no member of the organising committee will profit from the event.
