Colourful Street Procession Coming to Gt Yarmouth

A colourful street procession is coming to Yarmouth. Musicians will be leading a 90’s style music and dance procession through different parts of Great Yarmouth over three consecutive days next week..

The events are being organised by Freshly Greated – a creative project, funded by Arts Council England and led by the local community with support from Voluntary Norfolk, Out There Arts, Creative Collisions, Jays UK Ltd and Great Yarmouth Borough Council.

The organisers are bringing live music to the streets of Cobholm, Great Yarmouth and the Magdalen Estate in Gorleston from 22nd-24th February.

Mr Wilson’s Second Liners have performed at numerous festivals, carnivals and events throughout the UK and across the world.  This talented and diverse mix of musicians, performers, singers and producers, are renowned for their dynamic, engaging performances and creating a party atmosphere.

Street performers in action

Karen Jeremiah the Programme Director for Freshly Greated said:

“We can’t wait to blow away the winter blues and bring some fun to the neighbourhoods we work in with these brilliant performers. Freshly Greated are putting on a wide variety of creative and fun activities for communities in Great Yarmouth and Gorleston and welcome anyone to get involved”.

To help local residents get into the spirit, the Freshly Greated team are also putting on a series of free workshops during the half term holidays to decorate bucket hats – a popular accessory from the 90’s.

Workshops are being held from 10am-2pm on 15th February at Cobholm Community Centre, and again at the same time on 16th February at Market Gates Shopping Centre and 17th February at St Mary Magdalene Church.  There’s no need to book, but it is first come, first served.

If you want to take part in this incredible dance procession, meet at 5pm on Tuesday 22nd February at Cobholm Primary School, 5pm on Wednesday 23rd February at Great Yarmouth Primary Academy or 5pm on Thursday 24th February at Ormiston Herman Academy.
