Regular firework displays in Great Yarmouth and Hemsby throughout the summer will not be taking place this year due to ongoing caution following the pandemic.

However, there are still opportunities to enjoy fireworks elsewhere in the borough over the next few months.

Even though Covid restrictions were lifted on Monday, the regular firework displays on Great Yarmouth seafront and Hemsby will not be taking place this summer.

Lyndon Bevan, chair of Visit Great Yarmouth, said: "Because of the uncertainty around Covid restrictions, we have taken the decision not to financially support the 2021 Fireworks Displays at Great Yarmouth and Hemsby."

Later in the year, there will also be a fire-themed festival taking place at the Venetian Waterways in Great Yarmouth.

Tickets went on sale on Monday, July 12 for the first Fire on the Water festival, due to take place over 15 days from October 21 to November 6.

Joe Mackintosh, director of Out There Arts, said, the festival was "a boost" to the town.

He said: “Fire on the Water will be an exciting addition to the borough’s existing artistic offer of live outdoor performance and circus, and will help launch the borough as an all-year round destination for residents and visitors."

Tickets are £6 and admit up to six people in 10 minute slots from 6pm. Two walking routes are suggested taking around an  hour, or half an hour.
