Making Waves Together at First Light Festival

Making Waves Together is an ambitious three year programme that enhances pride, health, wellbeing and unites communities. It is bringing the towns of Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft together by giving people the opportunity to participate and engage in a wide variety of art and heritage activities and events that they may otherwise not have exposure to. Lowestoft Rising is pleased to be working with the following partners as part of the festival:

• Joe Carr from the Red House in Aldeburgh (Benjamin Britten’s house) who will be running musical storytelling sessions for little festival goers on Sunday morning from 8-8:45am and 10:45-11:30am.

• Time and Tide Museum who will be running craft sessions all Sunday morning: make your own pirate map or craft yourself a beautiful fish to take home!
