St. George's Theatre also has a wide and varied programme of shows from dancing to comedy to music to plays. If you're after something more energetic for your evening or afternoon's entertainment, challenge friends and family to a game of ten-pin bowling at the end of the Wellington Pier overlooking the waves. Enjoy a game of pool or snooker on the seafront, have a thrilling evening at the greyhound track or watching the stock car racing. For horseracing with a difference, try Live Music Nights at the racecourse in August. Great Yarmouth also has two casinos and several bingo halls.

In both resorts, the attractions all open later than usual so you can play crazy golf by moonlight, make the most of the fun fair or the Pleasure Beach and admire the evening illuminations at the Model Village.

Relax on Sunday afternoons at the bandstand opposite the Pavilion Theatre in Gorleston-on-Sea and enjoy a programme of music from local musicians from June to August.

If you've got plans to dance the night away head for the Ocean Rooms in Gorleston or Great Yarmouth's seafront where bright lights, music and a heady atmosphere will make sure you have a great night out.
