The Stars of Lowestoft make a return for this year’s summer trail!

Ten starfish are hiding in Lowestoft Town Centre for visitors and families to discover as part of this year’s summer trail, which launches Saturday 22 July 2023.

Delivered by Lowestoft Vision, the Business Improvement District for the town, along with support from local business sponsors the trail provides a free, fun and entertaining activity throughout the summer for visitors and locals alike.

Starfish will be hidden in and around Lowestoft Town Centre throughout the  Summer holidays, those visiting the town can collect a map from a number of shops in the town to help them on their quest. Each starfish contains a letter, after every starfish has been found they will reveal an anagram which must be unscrambled to be in with a chance of winning a prize. The trail is FREE to enter!

In addition, six stamps are also hidden within Lowestoft Town Centre and can be collected for an extra chance to win a prize. Completed trail maps must be handed into Lowestoft Library where entrants can collect a medal!* An exciting new addition for 2023!


Lowestoft Vision are excited to announce that this year’s headline sponsor for the summer trail is Richardson’s Family Entertainment Centre, a leading leisure and tourism business in Lowestoft.
