'Ancestors' portrays the lives of real Suffolk characters from the past century; retelling their experiences and bringing to the stage the stories discovered by the descendants. 

About the Show

Funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Land and Shore project worked with people at Dunwich, Lowestoft and Tattingstone to research and delve into the collections of Suffolk Archives and discover the stories of lost communities. 

The research led to discoveries about the fascinating and sometimes tragic lives of their relatives and ancestors; from Lowestoft’s workhouse and the town’s long-lost Beach Village and, further afield, to Dunwich and even Canada!

Working with creative arts organisation the Voice cLoud and using the resources and archives of Lowestoft and Suffolk record office, these stories will be brought to life through dramatisations and song by professional actors and musicians, and some of the participants themselves. 

This fascinating show is perfect for anyone interested in local and family history and the fascinating stories from towns and villages along The Suffolk Coast.
