The Ness Presents Waves & Wheels
Waves & Wheels on 19 October is a celebration of the transport and engineering expertise of Lowestoft, both its heritage and its future.
Lowestoft has a rich history of innovative engineering across many industries – traditionally boats and fishing, but also oil and gas along with the coach works, construction, prams, TV’s, and many more. The town is still at the cutting edge with OrbisEnergy acting as an innovation and incubation centre for the offshore renewables sector.
The day will showcase the prowess of the towns engineering with busses and boats, a mini tank, boat builders, a special Michael Burwood Art Exhibition, a workshop to make a film without a camera, as well as bikes and cars – vintage and electric.
Movie Makers in Sparrows Nest will be showing original travel and transport films, with events at Blackshore Clothing, and stalls and demonstrations from IBTC, Lings, Lowestoft Maritime Museum, Lowestoft Museum, Lowestoft Vintage Vehicle Club, Lowestoft War Memorial Museum, and photographs from SLP.
The Ness is a new park which will improve access, knowledge, participation and enjoyment of North Lowestoft and its unique maritime heritage and act as a new gateway to Ness Point. Work is due to start soon and is scheduled to be completed Spring 2020.
Waves & Wheels will be at the North end of Whapload Road, Lowestoft, NR32 1XG and with East Anglia Transport Museum supplying a vintage Lowestoft bus it promises to be an informative and fun day out.
