The Sir John Mills Theatre is located within the Eastern Angles Centre on Gatacre Road in Ipswich. The building was originally a Victorian primary school but has since been converted into a working theatre and in 2021 became the Eastern Angles Centre, an arts and heritage hub for the Westgate Ward community. 

If you ever need to collect or book tickets in person, you can find our Box Office in the Eastern Angles Centre. We have a free car park behind the building accessible via Gatacre Road, and a pedestrian entrance on Bramford Entrance.
