Getting There – Parking – Your Visit

Finding Us

The Gallery Studio Theatre is on St. Georges Street and is close to the centre of Ipswich. Our post code is IP1 3NF, click to find us on Google Maps. Our ‘What 3 Words‘ code is


Although you can drop off in front of the Studio, there is very limited on street parking outside the theatre so it is recommended you use William Street Car Park in William Street IP1 3HX, which is only a couple of minutes walk. It is ‘Pay & Display’. Park after 2pm Mon – Fri and its only £2.50. The Wolsey Car Park, IP1 2DX, again only a couple of minutes walk is also an option at £2.50 after 6pm any day (and is the cheapest for Saturday evenings). For Saturday matinees Crown Street Car Park, IP1 3HS is the most reasonable @ £4.50 for up to 3 hours. **

Pat’s Bar

The Foyer Bar is fully licensed and will be open at least 30 minutes before a performance and during any interval. We recommend pre ordering interval drinks so that you can relax! We sell a good selection of alcoholic and ‘soft’ drinks as well as coffee and tea, and also a couple of lo/no alcohol beers. While we don’t serve food we do sell ice creams and pouches of chocolates & sweets.


Wheelchair users can be reassured that there is a level threshold into the Studio from the street. This takes you into the foyer/bar area which is where our modern accessible wc is found.

There is a modern lift to the first floor auditorium for wheelchair users and those less mobile. If you have any concerns or queries please don’t hesitate to contact us here.

We always have 2 wheelchair spaces available for each performance when booking opens. (If these are not sold and a performance is close to selling out they will be converted back to standard seating, if you find this is the case please contact us and we’ll do our best to accommodate you).

Booking Tickets

Booking tickets is simple via the ‘button’ on the website. Just select the show and the performance you require. You will be taken to our booking platform TicketSource. Here it’s easy to choose your seats and pre-order a show programme (if available) and make a secure payment. Your tickets will be sent to the email address you enter or at a small extra cost TicketSource will post tickets to you. You can print off your tickets or show them on your phone once you get to the Studio.

If you find you need to exchange your tickets for another performance or you have any other ticket issues you can email us at the Studio is not ‘manned’ during the day so this is the best way to contact us.

If you wish to book tickets ‘in person’ you are most welcome but this is only possible at performances (although not necessarily the performance you wish to see, in other words you can book in advance) as the Studio box office is only ‘manned’ when a performance is on.

If you wish to make telephone bookings you can by phoning TicketSource on 0333 666 3366 (calls to this number are chargeable).
