Lowestoft Folk summer activities

Our regular sessions may have finished, but we’ve got a really exciting programme of FREE storytelling and creative activity sessions happening in Lowestoft this summer.

No booking is required – all the creative activities run on a ‘drop-in’ basis and are limited only by the number of chairs we can get round the table. Stories will be repeated during the two-hour period, so if you miss the beginning, you can always come back later, and start again.

Please be aware that sessions are suitable for children aged 7 years + and that they must be accompanied by an adult.
