Try live experiments. Meet the scientists. Get messy, inquisitive and hands-on. Planet Positive is a new space to play, learn and take action!

As the morning sun emerges across the horizon, we’ll meet by the water’s edge for a programme of music, activity and reflection that welcomes in a new day, together.

Curated by award-winning poet Luke Wright, First Light’s inaugural First Word programme brings the best in spoken word, theatre, comedy, and story-telling to Suffolk’s sunrise coast.

First Light Festival is a free 24-hour multi arts festival in a beautiful coastal setting. Celebrating one cycle of midsummer sun setting and rising over the beach in Britain’s most easterly town.
