Heritage and arts
What is the Council doing to promote arts and culture?
Culture, Heritage and Tourism Strategy: Our Place is Your Stage
Great Yarmouth's was collectively devised by the Great Yarmouth Culture and Tourism Board, and launched in August 2020. The Board is now working to develop and deliver ambitious projects and initiatives that expand and enrich the town's cultural and heritage offering for residents and visitors alike. As stated in the document: 'By 2030, we want the Borough of Great Yarmouth to be a place where culture and creativity are valued, where it enables wellbeing and economic prosperity, where visitors come all year round to enjoy our natural and built environment and engage with our rich and diverse culture'.
Great Places: Making Waves Together (2017-2020)
Making Waves Together, led by Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Waveney District Council (now part of East Suffolk Council), saw communities and groups in both areas work together to build cultural partnerships, engage new audiences and put arts, culture and heritage at the heart of the local vision.
This project formed part of the Great Place Scheme, delivered by Arts Council England, the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England. Making Waves Together received additional funding from the following:
- Norfolk County Council
- Suffolk County Council
- Great Yarmouth Town Centre Partnership
- Lowestoft Vision
- Broads Authority National Park
