For the event’s duration, the toilet and shower block windows are blacked out with shuttering to help preserve everyone’s night vision.
Nearby attractions include RSPB Minsmere, wonderful coastal villages like Dunwich and Walberswick, and the splendid town of Southwold with its renowned Adnams Brewery.
