There's a double dose of free fun this weekend at the In Here Festival in Great Yarmouth with Seachange Arts offering two afternoons of free family activities.

Tomorrow, 16 May, the Cook Up will bring family fun and recycled art to St. George's Park.

As part of the Cook Up, Seachange will be looking forward to the visit of a pair of theatre performances later in the week, with some themed creative activities.

To celebrate Roman comedy Gloriator, you'll be able to create your own cardboard helmet to take away. Then you'll be able to join in with the construction of a giant gladiator's helmet made from cardboard boxes.

Linked to the forthcoming ecological love story, Lorraine & Alan, you'll be able to create beautiful boats made from recycled water bottles and set sail on Seachange's carousel ride, Anchors Aweigh!

On Sunday, SeaChange host their third annual Open Day, offering visitors the chance to try their hand at circus and parkour. There will also be a drawing workshop with artists Jo Chapman and Mark Copeland, and a visit from Writer's Centre Norwich who will host creative writing workshop.

The Open Day wraps-up with a cabaret performance from local artists and performers from SeaChange's own circus school and members of Lost in Translation circus.
