The summer nights will be lit up with a spectacular fireworks display on Great Yarmouth seafront every Wednesday for six weeks.

Starting next week, ummer Wednesdays mean seafront attractions stay open until 10pm, so visitors can play crazy golf in the moonlight, wander round the illuminated Merrivale Model Village, enjoy thrills at the Pleasure Beach, or listen to free live music at the Sea Life Centre Gardens from 8pm, before watching the fireworks.

The live music dates are:

July 23: Solo, Emily Creed, band The Collective

July 30: Solo Joanna Power, band: Midlife Crisis

August 6: Solo Annika Rands, band Ignite

August 13: Solo Chelsea Francis, band Claire Barker Band

August 20: Solo Tamsin Palmer, band Captain Scarlet

August 27: Solo Gemma B, band Joe Ringer Band

  • V strikes me as the kind of chap who moves next to a gig venue, or a football stadium, and then complains about the noise. It's a seaside town, V. I imagine the tourist industry was alive and well when you moved there. And if I'm right, you're out in Bradwell anyway. Nice of you to worry for the sake of others' welfare though!?

  • grafter. You have taken what I said out of context. It about the noise. Surely the residents are allowed peaceful enjoyment of their property, without the noise of these fireworks. Has the council asked permission for this to happen as, I understand it, if you want fireworks, say at a wedding reception, then the venue has to get permission. Have the council or seafront parasites sort the views of the residence about this or are they just to be forced upon people just to keep the holidaymakers happy ?

  • Somewhat more cheerful that the sound of gun fire and sirens. Finally an excellent well support event in GY that we can all look forward too.

  • So its back then is it ?. The yearly thunderous noise from fireworks, the frightened pets and animals, the young children being kept awake and all to keep the holidaymakers and the seafront parasites happy. What about the locals then GYBC ?. Dont we count ?. Obviously not.
