RNLI Aldeburgh Station
Aldeburgh RNLI will be demonstrating their launch techniques and welcoming visitors into the station for both the carnival and open day and street fair later this month.

On Monday 21 August, Aldeburgh RNLI crew will take part in the annual Aldeburgh Carnival festivities with demonstration launches of their relief all-weather lifeboat (ALB), Keep Fit Association, and Inshore Lifeboat, Susan Scott.

Launch is planned for 11am, but is subject to weather conditions and operational requirements.

Aldeburgh Carnival is a three-day celebration with a procession, live music, sea-swimming races, duck races, kite flying, treasure hunt, and much more.

Information can be found at aldeburghcarnival.com

On Saturday 26 August, the whole family can enjoy the annual Aldeburgh RNLI Open Day and Street Fair between 10am and 4pm.

Visitors to the lifeboat station can meet the crew, visit both boats, tour the station, learn some of our fascinating history, enjoy the many stalls hosted by the fundraising guild, and take home a delightful souvenir from our ever-popular shop.

Refreshments will be served and those with a sweet tooth are advised to arrive early to enjoy the cake stall – always a popular attraction!

Aldeburgh lifeboat station has been operating since 1824 and has been part of the RNLI since 1852. To learn more about the lifeboat station go to: rnli.org/find-my-nearest/lifeboat-stations/aldeburgh-lifeboat-station
