Broadway House is "open house" to the over 60's - both resident and visitors to Felixstowe.
It is not a club, so you don't have to "join" or pay a membership fee, to be able to come in.
It is provided as a haven for over 60's to rest, have some tea/coffee or other light refreshments, meet or make new friends, use our Wi-Fi facility or just sit quietly in the company of others.
Broadway House, Orwell Road, Felixstowe IP11 7DD
Opening times: Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm and Saturday mornings 9.30am to 12.30pm (lunchtime)
Men’s Sheds (or Sheds) are similar to garden sheds – a place to pursue practical interests at leisure, to practice skills and enjoy making and mending.
The difference is that garden sheds and their activities are often solitary in nature while Men’s Sheds are the opposite.
They’re about social connections and friendship building, sharing skills and knowledge, and of course, a lot of laughter.

Felixstowe Cuppa Death Cafe
Felixstowe Cuppa Death Cafe is held in the friendly and inviting Cuppa cafe on High Street, Felixstowe. We meet on the Third Wednesday of every month, from 10am until 12 noon.
There is on-street parking nearby and the cafe is also well served by public transport. They serve a great range of tasty coffee, food and cake, including many amazing Vegan and Vegetarian options, which of course you're welcome to enjoy during the session!
At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives'.
A Death Café is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session.
Our Death Cafés are always offered:
On a not for profit basis
In an accessible, respectful and confidential space
With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!
