It’s not always easy to describe what goes on in a Lowestoft Folk session – there are just so many things happening, from making things and helping one another to learning new skills and hearing about old ones.

Last Friday was our last session at Britten Court – and what a session. All the artists were there and together we performed the Lowestoft Folk shadow puppet show, based on the story Lynn told us right back at the beginning.
When it was time to say goodbye, one gentleman turned to me and said “I thought, as an old man, I had nothing left to offer – but this has shown me that I was wrong, I can still offer things of interest. Thank you.”
And one of the children said … “We’ve created perfect harmony today – we’re a community together.”
On the morning of Friday, 26th April, we’re meeting up at Roman Hill Primary School for a celebration of all that’s been achieved over the last 12 weeks; participants’ families and friends are welcome to join us and we will be performing the shadow puppet show again and sharing the wonderful art works the participants have made.
And then, in the afternoon, we’ll be over at Pakefield, with a new group of children, starting the fourth – and final – iteration of Lowestoft Folk.
