A food and shopping hotspot along the Suffolk coast is hosting two Christmas events at the start of December. 

Beach Street in Micklegate Road in Felixstowe is created from upcycled shipping containers and is inspired by the 'boxpark' trend. 

It is home to many independent shops and food outlets from artisan producers to street food eateries.
