Extra Time at First Light Festival

First Light is a brilliant free festival on Lowestoft beach, celebrating the longest day and much more, besides.

The Extra Time team was thrilled to be a part of that celebration, welcoming families into the Cosmic Pirate marquee and inviting them to join our Extra Time supporters club, by adding their self-portrait to the large cardboard panels.

In addition to the self-portraits, participants were able to make their very own Extra Time medal to take home as a personal memento of the day.

Extra Time is all about celebrating our rich footballing heritage, so this was an ideal opportunity to revisit the Archive All-Stars and create a table top football pitch for the likes of the Co-op ladies and Terry Butcher, along with bell-swinging Ethel and the Bally Boys to have a quick game.

It was a fabulous afternoon – thank you for inviting us and we hope to see you on the beach again next year.

‘You came to my son's school and he took part in Extra Time - he loved every minute of it. He would come home and tell us all about it, he was so excited by the things he did and learned with you. Thank you so much for giving my son that opportunity.’
‘I'm really please with my face - it's the best thing I've done at First Light this year.’
‘I've really enjoyed making the face with my daughter, it was great fun to do it together like that.’
