Great Yarmouth Summer Fireworks Season Kicks Off on Wednesday 15 July

Greater Yarmouth Tourism & Business Improvement Area  (GYTABIA) is celebrating the summer with seven weeks of Wednesday evening entertainment, starting on Wednesday 15 July and ending on Wednesday 26 August. Each Wednesday evening climaxes with 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.

Music on 15 July will be provided by The Collective, one of Norfolk’s favourite function bands with special guest Joanna Power, who was a live finalist on ITV’s ‘Grease Is The Word’.

David Marsh, Interim Chairman GYTABIA said: “The summer starts here! Our Summer Fireworks evenings are a fantastic way to enjoy Great Yarmouth. We are looking forward to a big turnout on the seafront, with everybody dancing to the music, then watching the night sky light up with our superb fireworks display.”    

Other bands appearing during the summer are:
22 July: Helen Ashton Band, with guest Tommy Winn
29 July: GrooveJam, with guest Gemma B
5 August: Nightlife, with guest Chelsea Francis
12 August: Sophie G & the Good Times, with guest Emily Creed
19 August: The Claire Barker Band, with guest Anika Rands
26 August : Ignite
