Peppery Radio

Sadly the Peppery Show is no longer broadcast on ICRfm. But world and roots music crops up at various timed on Ipswich’s two community radio stations. Find their schedules at and

Summer Festivals

Each summer we work with partners to bring some of the world’s best bands to Ipswich. Ipswich Borough Council’s “Global Rhythm” free festival of world and roots music, which takes place in early July, features The Martin Burley Peppery Stage (named in memory of one of Peppery’s founding members) with a whole afternoon of fantastic live music curated by us. And Peppery sponsor a show at Ipswich Jazz Festival in June, and contribute a number of big names to the Bangladeshi Support Group’s “One Big Multicultural Festival” in late August / early September.

Venues across Suffolk which have held Peppery gigs!

Many thanks for bringing The Oysterband to a venue near us. The venue was brilliant. Can I say please please please can we have more of the same in Ipswich as I am sick of having to travel to Norwich, Cambridge or Colchester for decent gigs like this.
