On Sunday afternoon at 2pm the Great Yarmouth Brass Band will strike up for a musical performance on the Sea Life Centre gardens, meanwhile the Barry James band will be playing at the newly refurbished Gorleston bandstand at 2pm.

Finally, at 6pm on Sunday evening, 85 East Coast Truckers will roll into the resort and along Marine Parade as part of the Children's Charity Convey.

This action packed weekend will be rounded off on Wednesday evening at 10pm with the last summer fireworks of the season.
