“Missing Banksy” Pop-Up Exhibition

The Easterly Artists are back for the fourth year with the latest in their series of acclaimed pop-up exhibitions, taking over a disused property at the top of Lowestoft High Street and transforming it into a vibrant contemporary art gallery.

165 London Road North, Lowestoft NR32 1HG

Friday 8 – Sun 17 September
Open daily, 10am – 5pm

Titled Missing Banksy, this year’s show is a tribute to the famous graffiti artist’s 2021 Spraycation tour of Lowestoft and the surrounding area, and also a reference to the fact that much of the work he left for the public to enjoy has since disappeared into private collections around the world.

For further details, please see the Missing Banksy page.
