The University of East Anglia, University of Cambridge, Aviva, the NHS, Norfolk Police, the armed forces and Great Yarmouth Borough Council were among the stands.

The event was organised by the Network for East Anglian Collaborative Outreach.

Event organiser Marie Borrego said: “Well done to the young people and families of Great Yarmouth for turning out to our very first Futures Fest.

“The Minster was a fantastic venue for such an aspiring day. Great Yarmouth mayor, Mary Coleman, gave a heartfelt opening to the community event and enjoyed talking to the huge array of exhibitors who came along from the four corners of England.”
