Genevieve Christie, First Light Festival CEO and one of First Light CIC directors said: “We’re so excited to be able to announce the names of the traders who will make up the food community at East Point Pavilion. It’s such an amazing location and we think it will be a real asset to the town with something for everybody, whether you’re a local resident or visitor. We have exciting plans to run a year-long schedule of live music, DJs and performances, alongside a varied calendar of artisan markets and community-led workshops and events.”

The repurposing of this prominent building forms part of our ambitious plans to regenerate Lowestoft’s popular seafront, including the construction of 72 eye-catching contemporary huts further along the beach.”
