If you like the thought of a festival, then Greater Yarmouth's the place to be. The Great Yarmouth Beer & Cider Festival gets the festival season off to a flying start in May, swiftly followed by the Great Yarmouth Arts Festival  in June.

New for 2016 is the Greater Yarmouth FEASTival, a celebration of great food and drink with a twist.

Hemsby celebrates it's maritime location in summer with a number of festivals and fetes focused on the independent lifeboat service and the Hemby herring. 

The month long Festival of Bowls gets underway in August, running into September, the main festival month in Great Yarmouth featuring the Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival, the Great Yarmouth Maritime Festival, the Out There International Festival of Street Arts and Circus as well as the Eastern Festival of Racing and Heritage Open Days.
