Snape Bridge on the B1069 will be closed from Monday 19 October for two weeks. We will remain open but please be aware that If you are travelling from the north side of the bridge, you will need to follow a diversion and allow an extra 20 minutes for your journey. If you are travelling on the B1069 from the south, your journey will be unaffected.

Group A

A vocal performance initative for young people in Suffolk

Group A explores how music can help build positive communities. Working with 8-18 year olds in Suffolk, Group A consists of vocal performance groups that rehearse and perform throughout the year.

The project gives young people opportunities to work with a wide variety of professional musicians, explore a breadth of musical genres and take part in exciting and creative performances. The work aims to help build positive community links and raise aspirations for young people.

New members are always welcome. If you live in or around Lowestoft or Ipswich, get in touch by emailing

Group A in Covid-19

While our chances to sing together are limited, we hope that you’ll all continue to make music, and so we’ll share singing activities you can take part in from the comfort of your own home on our Facebook page.

We will be keeping our website up to date with plans for future rehearsals, and hope that we’ll be able to sing together soon.
