Was First Light your first visit to Lowestoft?

Did you know? Lowestoft is the UK's most easterly point and the first place to see the sunrise...

True First Light

I remember the boat coming ashore 😀

First Light 2019 wouldn't have been possible had it not been for a fantastic army of dedicated volunteers - were you a part of our volunteering team?

Just wondering???? Was there any of those t-shirts left/available?? Thank you

Loved it so much. Dawn.... Talvin... magical. Was a treat to be a volunteer.... def available next time.

So so gun miss it this year 😕😕 we loved it. I had to paint it.

Was just saying to my husband as we were looking out over Pakefield beach last night what a shame it isn't taking place this year as it was such an amazing event last year and I loved having the opportunity to volunteer.

A wonderous festival that will come again Im sure. Real proud of Lowestoft and its army of volunteers x

Amazing festival on our doorstep. It will happen again and will be even better I’m sure.

It was a fantastic weekend. Well done to everyone involved. Look forward to the next one 😊

Fantastic weekend. Looking forward to seeing you all next year

It was a beautiful festival... Here's one of my photos of Talvin Singh at sunrise. Stunning.

It was an amazing sight to see with Talvin Singh playing in the background, his music really suited the occasion and then for those fishing boats to arrive with loaf's and fishes was just magical. I have to admit that being there for the whole duration allowed me to sleep very well when I got home 😉

We did and loved it! 🤩😊

Lovely time camping on the beach

Yes it was wonderful !

It was wonderful and will be sorely missed this year. 🙁

We miss Pakefield Man - our very own"Angel of The East"! Bring him back please as a permanent statue. 😍 Loved the Festival last year, sad that it can't happen again this year, but looking forward to another one in the future.☀️

Talvin Singh, fishing boats being rowed in to the shore, beautiful sunrise and the most fabulous, joyous sense of peace. Thank you you. ♥️

... with Talvin Singh playing in the background, being on my own, made this such a special moment ✨✨✨

I didn't unfortunately but managed to see it before they moved him on

Just wonderful 💕

Fantastic. Hopefully next year.

What's happening this year😢is all cancelled or just a smaller event. So good last year! If kids ha e to go back to school and adults back to work oo trains and buses can't see why not go onto beach.

Just before sun rise x

Yes it was just great

Lovely memories

❤️

So sad this isn’t on this year.

First Light Lowestoft

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.

Donna Dean

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

Totally understand. But totally gutted too. Here’s to next years celebrations 🎉🌜🤗

Was looking forward to taking part, but completely understand and support the decision ❤️

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 🌅❤

    Everyone who appeared on the main stage. The calibre of all the performers was excellent and the diversity well worth listening to. That was just how music in such a setting should be. Thank you everyone.
    My favourites were Talvin Singh and Federico Albanese.
