To kick of this year’s First Light Festival, we’re creating a big Opening Parade which will come through the town, and everyone in Lowestoft is invited to be involved!

Made up of individuals, schools, community groups and local businesses, and featuring large-scale puppets, it’s a great chance to join in the fun and celebrate Lowestoft during the Festival.

Our Opening Parade is part of Hi! Street Fest, a nation-wide project from Emergency Exit Arts in partnership with Historic England that celebrates high streets up and down the country.
