2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the Out There Festival which brings the international circus and street arts worlds to Great Yarmouth for a weekend of colour, spectacle and riotous fun for all the family.
Organised by SeaChange Arts who are based in Great Yarmouth’s newly refurbished Drill House, Out There takes place all over the town centre and seafront, filling its venues, parks, streets and promenades with the cream of circus and street art performers from all over the world.
More than 60,000 people descend on Norfolk’s traditional seaside gem for the largest festival of it’s kind in the east of England, many of them from outside the region. Out There is a member of the ambitious Coasters partnership, a consortium of 10 seaside towns around the country that aims to boost tourism by reimagining the cultural life of some of our best loved coastal towns and touring exciting outdoor productions, many of them the sort of large scale events that thrilled audiences at the 2016 festival.
Almost all of Out There is completely free so if you only visit this Norfolk seaside gem once this year this is the weekend to do it!
