The Gorleston Clifftop Festival has announced that the team has managed to secure over £10,000 of private sponsorship from local businesses.

The festival has been running for 20 years and is organised by a voluntary committee and is self-finded.

The event is estimated to cost around £28,000 this year

After joining the festival last year, Tingdene are back on board as the main headline sponsor for this year.

Event sponsors also include Arthur Jary and Sons and the board of the Greater Yarmouth Tourism and Business Improvement Area.

Vicky Webber, event manager, said: “Securing this level of sponsorship is phenomenal for us, our costs have risen year on year due to the growth of the event and this support from local businesses means we can continue to run the festival and keep the books balanced.”

Gorleston Clifftop Festival takes place on July 28 and 29 on Gorleston Cliffs.

Events and activities on offer include forty hours of live music, fun fair, children’s arena, dog show and a grand firework display at 10pm on July 29.
