Great Yarmouth Festival of Bowls

Bowls Festival Bowls Festival Bowls Festival

Great Yarmouth Festival of Bowls is the biggest outdoor open bowling event in the country, with more than 1800 participants competing in mens, ladies and mixed teams for singles, pairs and triples titles over four weeks of play at the Britannia Bowling Greens on the seafront. 

Spectators can really enjoy the event too, with plenty of benches and seating around the arena from which to watch the day's play.

The 2015 Festival of Bowls took place from Sunday 30 August to Friday 25 September 2015, organised by the Great Yarmouth Bowls Committee, under the watchful eye of Tournament Manager Derek Webster (BEM) in association with the Tourism Division of Great Yarmouth Borough Council. The 2015 festival celebrated its 70th anniversary!

Next year's festival is scheduled for Sunday 28 August to Friday 23 September 2016 and competition entry forms can be downloaded here or alternatively to have a form sent to you or if you have any queries, please contact Sheila King on 01493 846344 or email sjk@great-yarmouth.gov.uk. Closing date for entries is 1 June 2016.

It is recognised that the Great Yarmouth Festival of Bowls could not go ahead without the valued financial support received from a number of local and national sponsors. If you are interested in becoming a future sponsor of this event please call 01493 846343.
