Thursday 13th December, from 6pm

Join us for an informal pre-Christmas drinks evening at The Dove Street Inn, Ipswich. No cost to attend, other than whatever drinks you want to buy from the bar.

We will be there from 6pm so come along and celebrate the festive season with us. Non members also very welcome.

This will be the first of our planned ISSBA evening social events so although you are very welcome to just turn up on the night, it would be really useful if you could book below to indicate your intent to attend to give us an idea of interest in this event.

Welcome to ISSBA

Ipswich & Suffolk Small Business Association (ISSBA) is the only business support organisation run by business owners for business owners. Established in 1986, ISSBA is non profit making and run by a committee of business owners who understand the ups and downs of being right at the coalface.

We are here to support you, by way of connecting you with other like minded business owners through our website, newsletters, full directory, annual exhibition and our lively and successful networking events. Let us help you make the most of this inspiring local business community.
