Great Yarmouth Heritage Guides are starting their season in February half term with a Yucky Yarns walk.

The family-friendly interactive walk will be led by ‘Jemima Black’, the custodian of the big book of Yarmouth Yucky Yarns who will tell children about the horrendous history of Great Yarmouth.

The walk covers gory stories, ghastly goings on with pirates, graveyard tricks and a secret chest.

It is on Wednesday, February 21 and starts at 11am by meeting at the front gates of Great Yarmouth Minster.
