Our Story

Life of Lowestoft is a new landmark documentary film which aims to shout about Lowestoft which is Britain's Most Easterly Town, by telling it's unique story and celebrate it's rich heritage and culture!

Phil Aves - Manager of Lowestoft Rising: “The concept of this Lowestoft Documentary is to capture some of this history and culture of our great Town and contrast that with the new and exciting developments that are now taking place here. Historically we have not captured the past well and we are in danger of not capturing the current changes as they happen. This documentary is being created and directed by Lowestoft 17 year old Joshua Freemantle on our behalf is an attempt to put that right and capture both our past and our present in a series of chapters leading to a full-length documentary film.”
