The carnival will feature a visit from beautifully created life-size elephants as part of a special Arts Council supported project, headed by Norwich City Council. It kicks-off a day-long celebration on the streets of our cultural quarter, called Fiesta Fiesta. Produced by SeaChange Arts, it promises music, street food, circus and performance and forms part of Look Sideways East, which is supporting the festival over the next two years.
We have a number of visual arts exhibitions in the town’s wonderful Minster which also plays host to the Waveney Sinfonia, performing a stirring programme of Beethoven and Rossini. There’s chamber music from the Cavick String Quartet, an organ recital and Gorleston’s own Chorus of St. Cecilia.
A lively programme of activities throughout the week will be a build-up to the town’s first Air Show.
Join us and stay for a while.
Tell your friends about it.
Better still, bring them along as well!
