Welcome

Join us in creating memories as part of First Light Festival

There are a number of ways for you to get involved in First Light Festival 2021 and its associated projects – just click below for more information!

Volunteer

For our inaugural festival, 100 volunteers joined us on the beach to help bring First Light Festival to the people of Lowestoft! Volunteers are an integral part of the team, helping us with stewarding events, artist liaison, box office, information and wayfinding.

We will be announcing further information about volunteering and how you can apply in the coming months, but in the meantime keep an eye on our social media for exciting updates!

Food at First Light

Our food traders at First Light Festival 2019 were hugely popular with the crowds! We want to expand this offer in 2021 and offer a wider range of amazing dishes and cuisines to our visitors. We will be announcing further information about trading at First Light Festival in the coming months, but in the meantime keep an eye on our social media for exciting updates!

Makers at First Light

Local makers, crafters and artisan traders will again have the unique opportunity to sell their wares at our First Light Festival makers market, showcasing the great produce of Lowestoft and its locality and the skills of makers who are inspired by the region, sun, sea and coast. We will be announcing further information about trading at First Light Festival in the coming months, but in the meantime keep an eye on our social media for exciting updates!
