VISITORS to Great Yarmouth are in for an action packed bank holiday weekend with something for the whole family to enjoy.

Marketing manager for Greater Yarmouth Kirsty Burn said: “The fun starts on Saturday morning when two days of beach volleyball gets underway with players from around the country competing on the beach near Britannia Pier as part of the Glad Slam Great Yarmouth Classic. The competition will culminate with the women's and men's pairs' finals on Sunday afternoon.”

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.
