Creative people are being sought as an inaugural festival is set to hit Britain's most easterly point.

A chalk festival is set to take centre stage in Lowestoft next weekend where you can help to "decorate Ness Point."

It comes after a series of art workshops were successfully held by The Ness - the UK's most easterly park - in the Britten Centre during the summer.

After East Coast College design student Jo Sullivan spoke with Jo Leverett, the events and marketing co-ordinator for The Ness, about her idea for a chalk festival in the town, it soon became reality.

With chalk festivals proving popular as they are held across the UK, the potential for a similar event in Lowestoft showcasing Ness Point was not to be missed. And next Saturday, September 14 from 10am to 4pm, the Ness Chalk Fest will be held.

Jo Leverett said: "We're hoping that everyone comes down to give it a go - we need creative people but also those who just love colouring in.

"We will work with the tide to create a unique design which will be washed away at the next high tide that evening."

The free event is held at Ness Point Euroscope, where chalks will be provided or you can bring you own.
