A NEW arts and heritage programme is being planned for north Suffolk next year.

Waveney Revels, which will run for more than 30 days in the spring, is a Waveney District Council initiative aimed at revealing the vast range of arts and heritage activity and diversity across the area.

The council said yesterday that arts and heritage events would take place in a variety of inside and outside venues, including pubs, churches, theatres and allotments and on board boats.

“The huge arts spectrum will range from conversation to stage spectacular, street performers to culinary creations via new media and folk traditions - plus all the usual artistic formats,” a spokesman said.

Residents, visitors, organisations and businesses are being invited to contribute ideas by the autumn.

The spokesman said Lowestoft's Marina Theatre, The Cut Arts Centre in Halesworth and the Fisher Theatre at Bungay had all enthusiastically backed the idea.

“With 15 museums and a multitude of heritage groups in the district there is an enthusiastic base to develop dynamic projects.

The Waveney Revels is initially being co-ordinated by the council's new Arts and Heritage Service.
