A pop-up beach hut library will be arriving on Lowestoft seafront next week to help families have seaside fun galore.

Suffolk Libraries has organised a week of free family activities on Lowestoft South Beach from Monday, August 14 to Friday, August 18 from 10am to 3pm.

The activities are running thanks to East Suffolk Council allowing Suffolk Libraries to use the beach hut free of charge.

Activities include interactive storytelling workshops, readings of classic children’s tales as well as Zumba and dancing on the beach.

Suffolk Libraries will also be giving away free books and art materials to inspire children and young people.

The full programme for next week is as follows:

Suffolk Libraries will be running two inclusive fitness classes on the beach for all ages on Tuesday with Zumba in the morning  at 11am and dancing in the afternoon at 1pm.

Wear comfortable clothing and suitable footwear if you want to enjoy the fitness activities and a bottle of water and a towel is also recommended.
