IF it’s Wednesday it must be fireworks and fun in Great Yarmouth as six weeks’ of summer night entertainment get underway.

Greater Yarmouth Tourist Authority is celebrating by painting the sky to the sound of music every Wednesday starting on July 25 and ending on August 29, with fireworks from 10pm.

On summer Wednesdays seafront attractions stay open 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 live music at the Sea Life Centre Gardens from 8pm, before watching the fireworks.

Bands booked for the Sea Life Centre Gardens are Beat Connection (July 25), The Claire Barker Band (August 1), Ignite (August 8), The Abba Babes (August 15), The Joe Ringer Band (August 22) and The Collective (August 29).

Ken Sims, chair of the GYTA said: “Wednesday evenings are a relaxed, fun-packed, family time, with plenty for everyone to see and do until the superb fireworks finale over Central Beach, courtesy of Greater Yarmouth Tourist Authority.”
