Details

The Great Yarmouth Carnival brings the whole community together to revel in a massive street celebration, as this year, as part of the Circus 250, we celebrate Circus!

The parade begins outside the last surviving 'total' circus building in the country, The Hippodrome at 11am.

The 'Circus Comes to Town' in a project that brings to the Carnival life-size Barnham & Bailey inspired elephant creations made by Tin House, and outsized banner flags from the internationally renowned Kinetika, the parade will move along the seafront, into town and then up to St George's Theatre. Here the parade will divide with one part heading to the Library, to launch the Community Fair, the second to SeaChange's Drill House to launch Festa Fiesta.

The Circus Comes to Town is a collaborative project between Norwich City Council, SeaChange Arts, Lost in Translation, Circus 250 and Norwich Arts Council will see the region marking 250 years of circus in 2018, thanks to £150,000 worth of funding from Arts Council England.
