People interested in the history of Lowestoft are invited to take part in a research project looking at the Scores.

Organised by the Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust as part of the Making Waves Together partnership, a nine week ‘Introducing the Scores – a Research Journey’ project begins on Thursday 31 January. Ideal for budding local historians and anyone interested in Lowestoft’s heritage, the project will explore the Scores through research, talks and visits. No experience is necessary and participants will also have the opportunity to receive training in oral history recording and research methods.

Cllr Michael Ladd, Waveney District Council’s Cabinet member for Tourism and Economic Development said:

“This is an exciting opportunity to find out more about the Scores, which are part of Lowestoft’s unique history and also to learn a variety of research techniques. We would encourage people to reserve their place as soon as possible.”

The project runs each Thursday from 10am to 12pm. Spaces are limited - to book your place, or for further details, please contact Rebecca Marta at rebecca.gypt@gmail.com or call 01493 859640.

Additionally, anyone with images or memories relating to the Scores is invited to get in touch for inclusion in the project.

The Scores Project is part of Making Waves Together, a wider partnership project led jointly by Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Waveney District Council and is funded by the national Great Place Scheme. This sees communities and organisations in both areas work together to boost the cultural offer and drive cultural re-imagination as a way of supporting success in the seaside towns. Great Places has been supported by a grant from Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, supported by Historic England.
