'The Museum of Beyond' by Fran Crowe, with composer Nathan Williamson and poet Leanne Moden 23rd - 27th July  

Suffolk artist Fran Crowe brings The Museum of Beyond to the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout

For her latest project, Museum of Beyond, Fran imagines a time beyond oil: the oil has run out and we live very different lives without plastics… and yet the plastic debris from our 21st century lives is still washing up on the seashore. What will people make of these items - and what will they think about us??
The Museum of Beyond imagines this future.  Come and find out more at the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout from Wednesday 23rd July until Sunday 27th July (opening hours 10am until 5pm, except Sunday 10am until 4pm). Fran will be at the Lookout throughout the week - drop in and meet her and talk to her about her collections.
