Fireworks are set to sparkle in the skies above Great Yarmouth as part of a theme park's bid to end Thursdays "with a bang".
While things may not quite be back to their pre-pandemic normal, Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach is billing itself as "the home of summer fireworks" after the weekly Wednesday displays were cut from the calendar amid uncertainty about the virus.
Now Thursday is set to be fireworks' day in the town, a highlight for many during the school summer holidays.
The displays will take to the skies at the end of each Thursday evening session on August 5, 12, 19 and 26 providing an added attraction for thrill-seekers and families at the seafront attraction.
Jamie Jones, Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach director, said: “Evening firework displays have been popular with visitors to the resort over the years and we wanted to bring the popular event back.
“Because we can open the park with limited numbers and with social-distancing measures in place, it means we are able to bring the thrill and excitement of the fireworks back to the town and light up the sky each Thursday evening.”

The display will be included in the price of an evening entry ticket on each Thursday evening at the Pleasure Beach.
It is the latest special event organised by the attraction to expand and extend its programme.
