An arts group is putting on a special evening on circus skills and pizza.

Seachange Arts is to launch two new events with a delicious blend of food and art at their base, The Drill House in York Road.

Tonight (Friday, January 27) sees the first Pizza and Tipples, a new fortnightly social event.

The Drill House bar will be open with the opportunity to make your own DIY pizza on a wood fired oven.

There will be creative activities for all the family too as local artist, Matthew Harrison helps you make giant willow hearts that will be used to decorate the venue for the upcoming Drill House Cabaret on Saturday, February 11.

You will also get a chance to try out some circus skills, from juggling to tumbling.

On Sunday, February 19, Sunday Roast mixes creative activities with a traditional Sunday roast dinner.

The monthly event runs from 12-4pm will offer a relaxed family atmosphere of good food and creative activities.

Seachange's communication director, Darren Cross said: 'We want the building to become a lively venue, somewhere where people can enjoy some quality family time.'

'Food is a great way of bringing everyone together, so it seems natural to build some of our activities around eating and socialising.'

The Drill House is also one of the UK's few dedicated creation centres for street arts and circus, with performers and companies across the country coming to Great Yarmouth to develop new shows.

'We'll see much more work being created here in Great Yarmouth over the coming years, much of which will be showcased at the Out There Festival,' explained Mr Cross.

'Some of those artists will get involved in events like Pizza & Tipples during their stay with us, presenting previews of their work or running workshops.'

Pizza and Tipples takes place tonight (Friday, January 27), from 4pm. Admission is free.

Sunday Roast takes place on Sunday, February 19 from noon. Admission is £2 or £5 for a family of four.
