Studio 188, formerly the art-deco Old Baptist Church, is Ipswich’s intimate performing arts development and live music venue right in the heart of the CBD. Boasting a flexible space, regular local live music events and arts development workshops, Studio 188 is an inclusive and creative space for everyone. The venue is available for hire for a range of activities and productions: live music events, trivia, music demo recording, boutique theatre performances, events, functions, meetings, and workshops.

Ipswich Unearthed is a bi-monthly performance and music business development opportunity for young, emerging musicians living in Ipswich.

Live! At The Baptist is Ipswich’s connection to the most cutting edge and progressive music scene in South East Queensland, programming emerging local artists with established performers with a view of fostering industry connections, exposure and development.

Quizmaster Matt Simpson will guide you through over 2 hours of TRIVIA questions – both general and theme nights throughout the year, making this the perfect night to catch up with friends and put your thinking caps on. Prizes to be won!
