Six weeks of seafront fireworks to start

SIX Wednesdays of evening entertainment on Great Yarmouth seafront and culminating with a spectacular seafront fireworks display start next week.

The aim is to help tourists celebrate the summer holidays and the Greater Yarmouth Tourist Authority say: 'Summer Wednesdays are a great day to visit the resort, whether you're a local planning a day trip with the family or a tourist staying in the area.'

Seafront attractions will stay open late 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 musical entertainment at the Sea Life Centre Gardens before watching the fireworks.

Ken Sims, Chairman of the GYTA said: 'Wednesday evenings are a relaxed, fun-packed, family event in our popular seaside resort, with plenty for everyone to see and do until the evening's finale with a superb fireworks display over Central Beach, funded by the Greater Yarmouth Tourist Authority.'

Great Yarmouth is a top ten seaside resort which attracts more than 4.4m tourists and day trippers a year. With 65,000 bed spaces across the Borough, a third of all holiday nights spent in Norfolk are tourists staying in Greater Yarmouth. Nearly 25pc of all holidays nights spent in Norfolk and Suffolk combined are taken in the borough of Great Yarmouth.
