But this time...


It's King Charles III's Coronation Weekend


We're offering afternoon teas (and not just in the afternoon, and not just with tea!)

On Saturday 6th May from 10am to 6pm we'll be serving afternoon tea on fancy china crockery in our wood-panelled dining room. To be assured of a place, book yours now.

You can also opt to take yours away in afternoon tea boxes if you want to head to the Cornhill for their free screening of the Coronation at 11am or Matilda the Musical at 2pm

On Sunday 7th May we'll be serving afternoon tea boxes - you can enjoy them in our beautiful oak-panelled dining room or you can take them away and enjoy on the Cornhill, watching the Windsor Castle Coronation concert.

What's it all about?

We're giving you a taste of what we're aiming for long-term in the Ancient House - we're bringing you a pop-up department store, some amazing food, a licensed bar and tours of this incredible building with some of Ipswich's Town Guides as well as music from our very own house DJ.

Whether you fancy shopping with our amazing makers and traders; a spot of lunch and a sit down; a drink and a natter; or you'd like to learn a little more about this awesome building, come see us.

Here's where you'll see are some of the makers that will be bringing you their delights over the weekend as we have them confirmed

Come and see us, meet the makers and traders and find out more about our plans, and follow us on socials for the latest news:
