13th - 21st

Welcome to Great Yarmouth Arts Festival

The Great Yarmouth Arts Festival 2023 Carnival Parade is on Saturday 23 September and starts off 10 days of music, visual arts, theatre, heritage etc. The Carnival procession will start at 12noon at Anchor Gardens on the Seafront, pass up Regent Road, through the Market Place, along King Street to St. George’s Theatre and on to St. George’s Park. The procession should reach St. George’s between 1.30pm and 2pm.


To allow the procession to progress through the town it will be necessary to temporarily close some roads for up to 15 minutes. We hope that this will not cause you too much disruption. On the contrary, we hope that the increased number of people in the town during the day of the Carnival will benefit your business.

If you would like any posters or leaflets about the Carnival or about the Festival, or have any concerns/questions please contact us via marketing@gyartsfestival.co.uk where we can try and help. Perhaps you would consider displaying the poster on the other side of this letter on your window. I hope that you, your customers and friends will get involved with the carnival and festival and come to some of the many events we are putting on.


With best wishes,
Hugh Sturzaker, MBE
Festival Chairman
