Thousands of people watched in awe, as Great Yarmouth became awash with colour and spectacular performances.

The Out There Festival brought a stunning array of circus and street arts to the town, with visitors coming from across the country to enjoy the spectacle.

For three days, St George’s Park, the town centre and the seafront, were beacons of entertainment, as all kinds of performances delighted festival-goers, who gasped, laughed and applauded in appreciation.

Visitors flocked from outside the region, from places such as Luton, Worcestor and Bury St Edmunds to take in the fun, which was organised by Great Yarmouth-based arts company Seachange Arts.

The event also saw the grand re-opening of the Drill House performing arts venue, which was marked with a spell-binding performance of Coulrophobia from clowns Dik and Adam.

Darren Cross, communications director of Seachange Arts, said: “It was really great to see so many people coming together and enjoying themselves - it’s brilliant for Great Yarmouth.

“To see the Drill House back open after all that hard work was a very special moment.”

Visitors were also able to get a taste for the town, as local brewery Lacons provided a specially-brewed festival ale.

Mr Cross added: “The whole event was a fantastic success - it will be a quite a challenge to top it next year.”
