Three busy shopping locations have played host to a mighty mollusc, piquing interest and giving a taster of what will be on offer at this weekend’s Out There festival in Great Yarmouth.
The giant snail, part of Suffolk-based Insect Circus entertained crowds in Lowestoft on Saturday, and Great Yarmouth and Norwich yesterday, to promote the festival, organised by SeaChange Arts.
Darren Cross, communications director at SeaChange said: “The ‘snail-paced’ tour kickstarted the Out There celebrations, giving the public a sense of the weird, wonderful and wacky that takes over Great Yarmouth at festival time. And there are plenty more jaw-dropping Out There antics in store for the weekend.”
These include game show theatre fusion The Money and a surreal trip into the underbelly of the fairy tale in C’Era Una Volta on Friday. And on Saturday evening three metre high skeletons and a troupe of undead drummers take to the streets in Les Tambours De La Muerte by Transe Express.
Darren added: “We can guarantee that you’ll leave having seen something you’ve never seen before!”
