First Light Festival is a brand new, free, non-stop 24 hour long, multi-arts festival that celebrates the first light of midsummer’s weekend at Britain’s most easterly point. The festival is the brain child ofa team with extensive experience in creating and delivering exceptional events, including the acclaimed designer and urban regeneration specialist Wayne Hemingway.
Events will begin on Lowestoft’s sandy South Beach at noon on Saturday 22nd June and will run continuously through changing tides, light and darkness, sun and stars until noon on Sunday 23rdJune.
The festival will be a fantastic addition to the 2019 Suffolk Day celebrations with local people involved in all aspects of it. Organisers are now putting a call out for people to volunteer at the festival, which will be an opportunity to meet new people, try new things, gain experience and be part of something special! The festival website now gives all details of how to get involved.
Genevieve Christie, Festival Director, says: “This is a really packed programme that is all about asense of place, and which will deliver a truly unique shared experience on Lowestoft's beautiful beach, of music, dance, film, literature, art, science, talks, walks, sports, workshops, fire, food and drink.”
