Join in: Urban Animal Mask Making Workshop


13:00-15:00 Thursday 1 June
East Point Pavilion
Free and Open to all
Part of First Light Festival’s Opening Parade Workshops

This year’s First Light Opening Parade will feature a whole host of Lowestoft’s native urban animals, so we’re inviting everyone to come down to East Point Pavilion to make their own masks and get in the parade spirit! Free and with materials supplied – all welcome!

Drop in on the day or click here to register your attendance through our Eventbrite (so that we have an idea of how many to expect!).


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.
