The SteamWorks site in Blyth Road lies adjacent to the 1879 Southwold Railway trackbed and close to the site of Southwold Station. Just ten minutes' walk from the town centre, it is where The Southwold Railway Trust volunteers are working on locomotives and rolling stock, with the aim of re-creating the experience of travelling on the 3-foot gauge Southwold Railway (operated 1879-1929).
Come and see how this site is being transformed, the 3-foot gauge steam engine Scaldwell, the Blyth Valley Light Railway (a 7.25 inch railway), and learn more of what the Trust is achieving. Refreshments available. Shop. All Welcome.

On selected dates tours of Southwold Lighthouse are organised by Southwold Millennium Foundation under licence from the Corporation of Trinity House, take approximately 30 minutes, and are on the hour and half hour.

Reaching back to the Bantu migration some 5000 years ago from the Tanganyika and Baka tribal regions, Anna Mudeka takes us on an inspirational journey to modern-day Zimbabwe, London and Norfolk. Paying homage to the great ancestors of Zimbabwe, especially Nehanda - the powerful female warrior who united the tribes and led the first Chimurenga war in 1896-7, Anna tells the story of her childhood in a free Zimbabwe - about the influence of her grandmother and the difficult decision to leave and pursue her dream as an artist in the UK.
Kure Kure/Faraway speaks of the challenges and opportunities of starting a new life in a different country, this narrative rings true to contemporary lives and tackles issues facing the world today, posing important questions around migration, cultural identity and changing belief systems.
Authentic live and recorded music permeates this thought provoking show as Anna showcases traditional skills; haunting vocals, highly accomplished mbira playing, dancing and drumming accompanied by multi-media visuals.
