Culture vulture! All the best art, theatre & music for 2022!

Diary out, it's time to start planning all the cool cultural things to do in Suffolk & Cambs this year - from drag shows to art exhibitions

THEATRE 

Stay or sashay away!

Bing, bang, bong! RuPaul’s Drag Race UK is coming to Ipswich Regent Theatre (2 April) and we’re so here for it. Our lockdown TV faves Tayce, Bimini Bon Boulash, Ellie Diamond and Laurence Chaney *pronounced in Scottish accent* will be live on stage in all their glittering glory – slay!

If you’ve got some Julia Donaldson fans in your house, snap up tickets for Zog and the Flying Doctors (11-13 March) at the New theatre Peterborough ASAP.

Fatal Attraction (25-30 April) at Cambridge Arts Theatre promises to be a thrilling night. Oliver Farnworth from Corrie and Susie  Amy from Footballer’s Wives, play Dan and Beth Gallagher whose lives are destined for ruin after he has an affair. Expect to be as gripped as you were by the film! 

April 30 is a date for your diary if you’re keen to see Strictly’s Giovanni Pernice in the flesh (literally, judging by the promo pic). Ballroom, Latin, Jazz….The Apex in Bury St Edmunds will be hotter than the Sahara. Date not working for you? You can always catch him at the Cambridge Corn Exchange on 16 May instead.

The Marina Theatre in Lowestoft has an all singing and dancing schedule for ’22, including Lost in Music: One Night at the Disco (27 May) and The Nutcracker from Russian National Ballet (5-11 Nov). 

MUSIC 

There’s a one-off chance to hear young musicians from the BBC New Generation Artists scheme at four performances at Snape Matings (5 & 6 March), like The Mithras Trio (pictured), with the sessions being recorded live and broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

Anne-Marie, Paloma Faith, The Script and Pete Tong and The Heritage Orchestra are all playing live at Newmarket Races this summer (June-Aug), so snap up some tickets before they sell out as they promise to be major. 

Celeste plays the Cambridge Corn Exchange (12 April), we loved her debut album Not Your Muse and can’t wait to see her play live.

ART 

Abstract meets Landscape is a new exhibition at Gallery East in Woodbridge (from 3 March), including top UK artists Ruth Bunnewell, Neil Canning, Jane Lewis RWS, Malca Schotten and sculptor Robert Erskine FRSS

FLORART: Visions of Nature Exhibition at The Apex in Bury St Edmunds (12 April – 15 May) caught my eye – beautiful close ups of the natural world around us by a husband and wife team.

Creating Constable Exhibition is showing at Mansion’s Wolsey Art Gallery in Ipswich until 24 April to coincide with the 200th anniversary of The Hay Wain – includes recently discovered work by the artist shown to the public for the first time. 

COMEDY 

Muddy fave Dylan Moran’s serving up the giggles in his brand new show We Got This at The Royal Theatre in Bury St Edmunds (6 April) . 

The Scummy Mummies always guarantee laughs with their take on parenting and are rolling into town at the Cambridge Junction (22-23 June) – definitely grab a mate and a gin-in-a-tin for this one. 

FESTIVALS 

Ready to let your hair down in 2022? It doesn’t come much better than three days of dancing in the sunshine at Latitude Festival, which is back at Henham Parlk in Suffolk this year from 21-24 July. Headliners so far including The Chemicals Brothers and Wolf Alice, which is enough for us to snap up tickets tbh. 

Hello, is it me you’re looking for? Yes, if you’re all about the disco like family-friendly The Cambridge Club Festival (10-12 June). We heart this year’s discotastic line-up including Trevor Nelson, Gabrielle, Diana Ross and Lionel Richie.
