"23rd July: Suffolk Coastal arts service is producing a directory of cultural activities, groups, facilities and services for the district which will be available on line and in booklet format from January 2007.
'Suffolk Coastal is bustling with cultural activity; camera clubs, choral societies, rock schools, recording studios, theatres and international festivals of music and poetry, but there is no central source of information to tell you who is doing what, how to get involved or who offers venues and specialist services,' said Cllr Rae Leighton, Cabinet Member for Community Well-being.".....

oh and

....."23rd June: The Cotman Challenge Exhibition at Reunion Gallery, Gainsborough Road.

Did you know there is more to Felixstowe than a Sunday market, funfairs and the Docks? If you lift your head up you will realise that the town is populated with many fine examples of quirky and individually designed buildings. To celebrate this the Reunion Gallery will be staging an exhibition during July 2006 highlighting the legacy of one of the architects responsible for this - Thomas Cotman.
Entitled The Cotman Challenge the exhibition will feature specially commissioned work from a number of artists who will each interpret the work of Cotman and his lasting influence on the town in their own style. Artists exhibiting are Maggi Hambling. Alex Beale, Alison Malcolm, Ian McDermot, Linda Kingsford, Michael Barratt, Nicki Holt, Paul Reeve, Rosemary Humphries, Ann Faiers and Cherrie Macgregor
Much of Felixstowe’s character owes itself to the work of the architect Thomas W Cotman who lived and worked in the town at the turn of the 20th Century and much of its character is defined by his influence. "
