FELIXSTORY STREET THEATRE

These days Felixstowe is best known for its thriving container port, one of the largest in the UK. But more than a hundred years ago, in the golden years before the First World War, it was one of the most fashionable resorts in England. The wonderful Felixstory - a street theatre history of Felixstowe - took in entertainment, suffragettes, war, radar and a ride on a vintage bus. Not to mention a passing acquaintance with John Betjamen and a certain Mrs Wallis Simpson who stayed here while she got to know Britain’s future King, Edward VIII.

Fashion, war, and scandal; all was told in a roving performance by the acclaimed theatre company Black & White Productions over the late summer weekends of 2014 when audiences strolled through history and enjoyed a ride on a vintage bus.
