Come From Away – Community Appeal

Come From Away shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives. The award-winning musical visits the Regent Theatre from 2 to 6 July 2024.

The spirit of the show is all about community spirit and how communities can come together to great effect. During the run of Come From Away at Ipswich Regent Theatre we will be calling on our amazing audience members to support the community of Ipswich by supporting ihAg (Ipswich Housing Action Group) by donating items to help those who are homeless within Ipswich.

How can you help?

We are looking for those attending performances of Come From Away between Tuesday 2 and Saturday 6 July to bring in 1 item each to donate, these items will then be collected by ihAg and distributed amongst their partners.

We will be looking for:
– Tinned soup/beans/fish/fruit
– Anything that can you can add water to, to make a meal – e.g pot noodle, cup a soup, porridge pots
