The documentary ‘Life of Lowestoft’ which was filmed over the course of a year, celebrates and highlights the coastal town as it is set to be released later this year.

Before the coronavirus pandemic, the documentary was set to have its premiere on June 10 at the Marina Theatre, but this has now been postponed to a later date.

Mr Freemantle said: “To mark the original date of the premiere we will broadcasting a live stream across Facebook for all of our lovely supporters following our documentary.”
