Time for the Cube to move on

So, it’s goodbye to Cedars Park Community Primary school …


and it’s ‘hello’ to Stowmarket Library, where the Cube will be on display until the end of July, when it will move on to the Museum of East Anglian Life.

To celebrate the Cube’s arrival at the Library, Caitlin Howells will be running a craft activity there on SUNDAY, 3RD JULY from 10:30am to 12 noon. More activities with Caitlin, Dean and Emma will take place at the Museum of East Anglian Life during August – more details to follow in the next week or so.

The Big Barn at MEAL

This is it, folks – the venue for our Grand Celebration on Saturday, 10th September.

We are inviting guests to come along at 1pm – that will give them time to visit Abbot’s Hall and the Walled Garden, the Domestic Life Building (where the Cube will be exhibited) and the gypsy caravans, before we show the animations at 2.30 – followed by tea, cake and possibly a few games, at 3 o’clock. The event will finish around 4 o’clock and the Museum closes at 4.30.

I will be contacting everyone over the next few weeks, but please do keep the date – I’ll be in touch soon.



Saturday 10th September 2016

Keep the date – it’s when we plan to hold our Suffolk at Play Bumper Celebration at the Museum of East Anglian Life in Stowmarket.

Well over 100 people have taken part in the project since it started in November 2013, and we hope that as many as possible will come along, with family and friends, to view the complete set of animations and celebrate all the wonderful work that has been created along the way.

More details will follow shortly and I will be contacting the individual groups concerned, but please put the date in your diary now – and I hope to see you in Stowmarket in early September.

The Suffolk at Play booklet is full of anecdotes shared by the residents and pupils during the project.

You can see the booklet for yourself, by clicking on the booklet image below. The link will open in a new tab, so you’ll be able to come back to this site easily.

Meanwhile, everyone thoroughly enjoyed reading the stories – and checking that I’d got my facts right.
