First Light Lowestoft
2 weeks ago
We are so very grateful for the support we’ve received from our partners, colleagues, funders and most importantly, the Lowestoft community, over the course of the last two years creating First Light and making our first year such a brilliant success.
We’re heartbroken to have to cancel this year’s festival, and aware of the impact that this global situation will have on all the talented performers, artists, makers and crew that were due to take part, but we’re still working as First Light CIC to plan a programme of work later this year which will feed into next year’s festival.
At the moment, the world feels like we’re in limbo; stuck in the darkness between dusk and dawn, but there’s good news - the sun always rises.
We know we’ll all come together again on the beach, and until then let’s all focus on doing what we can in our communities; looking after our people and our planet, until that pink glow starts to appear over the horizon once again. ...
That’s such a shame 😪
Well said we will b there xx
That's crap Lizzie, be back next year 💪
After last year was looking forward to coming up again from Colchester for the weekend. But as always after a festival. They say next year WILL BE BIGGER AND BETTER. ❤️❤️
How sad I know how much hard work has already gone into this but you have done the right thing and yes let's hope the sun shines for a fantastic festival next year we will be there best wishes to everyone keep safe
Bigger and better if that’s possible for next year, loved being involved last year, such a shame but under the current circumstances, inevitable.
Beautifully written. So sorry you’ve had to cancel, but our community will all be here next year to support the wonderful event you put on! 🌅
Roll on 2021. Love to all. Xx
The Sun will rise again over the east very soon and the festival will be much supported even more x

So sad you have had to cancel but completely understandable. Stay safe everyone.
Right decision ❤️
We’re all in this together. Love to you all - another sad loss to covid-19.
Thank you lovely FirstLight team. 2021 will be awesome.
So sorry - such a great festival - we in Dorothy's Shoes loved performing with you last year and hope to be back in Lowestoft in 2021 💚
The Rabble Chirus will return!
It's the festival not the sunrise which is cancelled, roll on First Light Festival 2021!
So sorry you’ve had to cancel, your Festival was so popular and well loved last year, look forward to joining you all on the beach again soon!
First Light will rise again 🌅❤
