Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Life of Lowestoft is a documentary which showcases the past, present and future of Britain's most easterly town.

Phil Aves, Manager of Lowestoft Rising, says: 'The concept of this Documentary is to capture the history and culture of our great Town, and contrast that with the new and exciting developments that are now taking place here. Historically we have not always captured the past well, and would like to ensure that we document the current changes as they happen.'

This film is created and directed by 17-year-old Lowestoft local, Joshua Freemantle and it features historic footage, photos, and first-hand stories from our local community.

It relives the moments which made 2019 so special and looks towards the bright future of our town.

Joshua says: 'The filming of this documentary spans an entire 12-month period, from June 2019 – June 2020, but it also focuses on celebrating the rich history of our town, which truly is a very special part of the UK. Lowestoft has risen to challenges, become a national leader in industries and made the most of its unique and special geographical position. This project has given our community the opportunity to get involved, share their stories, and be (rightly) proud of where we live!'

'Lowestoft is certainly somewhere you can be proud to say you are from, now live or come to visit on holiday!'

The project wouldn't be possible without our funders: East Anglia Art Fund, Lowestoft Rising, Making Waves, East Suffolk Council and Kirkley People's Forum.
