Colour, dance, and live music add to festivities

Community arts project Freshly Greated (a partnership headed by Voluntary Norfolk and funded by Arts Council England) have organised a set of events that seek to add colour, dance and live music to Great Yarmouth Borough Council’s Paint the Town weekend.

Paint the Town is a brand-new arts festival which seeks to shine a spotlight on local artists, photographers, and musicians in the town.

The events put on by Freshly Greated, on Saturday 26th March and Sunday 27th March, will include face and rock painting workshops as well as live dance and music performances (the full programme can be found below)

Karen Jeremiah, Freshly Greated’s Programme Director, said:

“We’re delighted to put on these events and be part of this new and exciting initiative that the council have organised. It should be fun for all the family, and we look forward to welcoming as many people as wish to come along. These offerings are brilliant ways to bring communities together and that is exactly what Freshly Greated and Voluntary Norfolk always aim to do.”
