We are only here for the beer... and the cider.
This afternoon saw the launch of the four day Great Yarmouth Beer and Cider Festival at St George's Theatre.
Doors opened at 5pm with people eager to collect their tokens so they could sample the various tipples on offer.
Jonathan Newman, one of the organisers, said one of main attractions of the event was that out of 40 real ales, 35 were from local breweries.
He added: 'We want people coming into the town and enjoying themselves in such a fantastic building.'
