Welcome to the Extra Time Souvenir Programme

It’s been a truly remarkable first season, with loads of excitement both on, and off, the pitch.

But first, a little bit of background to our story.

Extra Time is managed by Suffolk Artlink. We specialise in bringing people together—participants, artists and partners—to explore social and cultural topics and create new, exciting artworks to express what they discover.

Extra Time Participants

The opening season in Lowestoft involved a team of nine Year 5 children from Roman Hill Primary School and residents from nearby Britten Court Care Home.

Extra Time Artists

Acting as referees, coaches, and suppliers of half-time orange slices were community artist Caitlin Howells, goalie poet Dean Parkin, dancer Jen Johnson and sculptor, Carrie Phoenix.

Extra Time Partners

Our partners on Extra Time are Suffolk Archives, the source of many of the images and documents used to inspire the creative content of our sessions.

And, in case you haven’t already guessed, the topic is
