Maritime Festival Media Enquiries

Making Waves - Behind the scenes in Great Yarmouth

Please get in touch with any media enquiries about the Maritime Festival or see our Media Centre.

We're usually very happy to have film crews come on site to film the event, or broadcast live from South Quay, but please do get in touch before the event so we can book you in and issue media passes to you and your crew. When visiting tall ships are coming in, there's often a media opportunity to get on board and have a look round before the crowds arrive, so you can submit your article well in advance of the day.

Interviews with the Chairman, Aileen Mobbs or with other members of the committee for television, radio or press either before or during the event are always an option. 

Social Media

Follow all the latest Maritime Festival news on social media - our FaceBook page will be updated regularly as we get nearer the event and you can follow or tweet Horatio @GYMaritime on Twitter too.
