GREAT YARMOUTH ARTS FESTIVAL CARNIVAL
We have been working to support this volunteer run event which provides a great showcase for local talent every June. In 2016 young people from the Creative Collisions youth arts network made giant puppets of some of the Rock and Roll stars that played in Great Yarmouth during the 1960s. This work was inspired by the Halfway to Paradise exhibition at Time and Tide Museum, the title of which was also adopted by the carnival that opened the festival. The puppets were paraded alongside colourful floats and music provided by local community groups in a procession that made its way from the Seafront to the Market before ending up at St Georges Theatre. This year’s carnival looks set to be even bigger with young people taking inspiration from the ‘Great Yarmouth Rhythms’ theme.
