Family treasure hunt at Out There festival

Volunteers from the Nelson Museum decorating silk that will form their balloon.Organisers of Great Yarmouth’s Out There Festival are preparing a family activity as part of the 10th anniversary celebrations.

SeaChange Arts have been working on a number of events to mark a decade of circus and street arts performances throughout the town.

Local artists Matthew Harrison and Genevieve Rudd have forged a link with community groups to create 10 hot air balloon decorations that will form a family treasure hunt around the festival sites this year.

Each balloon depicts a famous Great Yarmouth landmark or element of local history.
This week volunteers from the Nelson Museum and members of Great Yarmouth and Gorleston Young Carers group have been working on designs.

Alison Green from the Nelson Museum said “We’ve enjoyed working on the designs. It’s a lovely way to mark ten years of the festival through pieces of art that celebrate elements of Yarmouth’s rich history, like Nelson.”

The Out There Festival takes place in and around St. George’s Park on Saturday and Sunday, September 16 and 17.
