The Ipswich Libraries Cocktail Hour is a premium event free to Ipswich Libraries members and held at Ipswich Central Library.

Cocktail Hour is where we share extraordinary stories that challenge our preconceptions of the world and celebrate the achievements or a range of diverse speakers.


Cocktail Hour Registration and Ticket Draw

An open registration period of one week provides members with plenty of time to register online, in person or over the phone ensuring that everyone has an equal chance of securing tickets no matter how they choose to register for the event. After registration has closed, a random draw is conducted and tickets allocated with a maximum of two tickets per registration (one member plus one guest).

One valid registration only per library member 18 years and over. Duplicate registrations will not be included in the ticket draw. Registration does not guarantee a ticket.

On the night: Don’t forget to bring your printed or e-copy ticket to show at the door. One ticket per person is required for entry.
