Great Yarmouth Summer Fireworks on the seafront















Greater Yarmouth Tourist Authority is celebrating the summer with six weeks of Wednesday evening entertainment, starting on Wednesday 25 July and ending Wednesday 29 August. Each Wednesday evening culminates in a spectacular fireworks display on Great Yarmouth seafront at 10pm.


Summer Wednesdays are a great time to visit the resort. Seafront attractions stay open until 10pm, so visitors can play crazy golf in the moonlight, wander round the illuminated Merrivale Model Village, enjoy some exhilarating thrills at the Pleasure Beach, or listen to free live music at the Sea Life Centre Gardens from 8pm, before watching the fireworks.

Bands booked for the Sea Life Centre Gardens are Beat Connection (25 July), The Claire Barker Band (1 August), Ignite (8 August), The Abba Babes (15 August), The Joe Ringer Band (22 August) and The Collective (29 August).

Ken Sims, Chair of the GYTA said: “Wednesday evenings are a relaxed, fun-packed, family time, with plenty for everyone to see and do until the superb fireworks finale over Central Beach, courtesy of Greater Yarmouth Tourist Authority.”

With 65,000 bed spaces across the Borough, a third of all holiday nights spent in Norfolk are tourists staying in Greater Yarmouth. Nearly 25% of all holidays nights spent in Norfolk and Suffolk combined are taken in the Borough of Great Yarmouth.
