Stars and Stripes

Frenchy: The World's Worst Adult

  • TUESDAY 8PM
  • IPSWICH CIVIC CENTRE

IN THE last twelve months, praying mantis lookalike Frenchy has sold out all major Australian comedy festivals, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and he debuted in iTunes' Top 30 with his first single, Friendzone.

With over 200 million views and 1.5 million fans on social media, it's fair to say internet sensation Frenchy is on fire, and his audiences just keep begging for more. See him, hear him, enjoy him, at the Ipswich Civic Centre.

Ipswich x 5

  • DAILY FROM 10AM
  • IPSWICH ART GALLERY

SINCE the late 16th century British expansion brought crops, livestock and even the names of towns and cities native to Great Britain into new settlements around the world. One such name to spread throughout the world was Ipswich.

In early 2000, documentary photographer and Griffith University lecturer Charles Page set out to document the similarities and differences of these namesake towns: one in the United Kingdom, one each in South Dakota and Massachusetts, U.S.A., a remote town in Jamaica and a city here in Australia.

Passion and Romance with QSO

  • THURSDAY 7.30PM
  • IPSWICH CIVIC CENTRE
