2021 IMT Calendar Launched

We are so excited to continue to produce the IMT wall calendar for another year. Our 2021 calendar theme is ‘Races, Rallies and Regattas’. It features images from the Ipswich Maritime Trust’s Image Archive of some of the events and activities held between 1862-2017. For our new calendar we felt that we should celebrate the days when the people of Ipswich were able to enjoy their waterfront, without the need for social distancing! A mixture of old and recent images, including postcards from the Leonard Woolf collection, have been brought together in a form which we hope members and supporters might feel would make an ideal Christmas gift.

Around a century or so ago the area around the Promenade and its ‘Umbrella’ shelter was a regular centre of activity for those wishing to enjoy the river. People came in their thousands to watch and participate in the famous annual Ipswich Regatta. As well as the rowing races held throughout the year and the occasional special event such as the launching of the Ipswich lifeboat. Hog Highland is also featured, then it was open countryside. But now is part of ABP’s Cliff Quay. It was a favourite pleasure beach as seen in a hand-coloured postcard featured in the calendar.

Many of the images, some shown below, have not been published before. They are of photographic quality and the calendars are printed on satin card.

If you would like to purchase a calendar, they are on sale for £8 each if collected (see details below) or plus an extra £2 for post and packaging. If you are interested in purchasing multiple calendars by post, then please get in touch with us.
