What is the Council doing to promote arts and culture?

Culture, Heritage and Tourism Strategy: Our Place is Your Stage

Great Yarmouth's Culture, Heritage and Tourism Strategy: Our Place is Your Stage was collectively devised by the Great Yarmouth Culture and Tourism Board, and launched in August 2020. The Council and its cultural partners use this strategy 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'.

The Culture Board is currently developing a new version of the Culture and Tourism Strategy to reflect the significant collaborative progress that has been made against the ambitions set out in the current version, the evolving expectations/preferences of residents and visitors and new opportunities.

Culture Support Package (UKSPF Grants)

A series of grants has been made available to provide a flexible subsidy to help our cultural organisations grow, improve resilience, and extend impact or reach. Grants are available to any micro, small or medium sized business involved in arts, culture, or heritage within the borough.

The first round of applications took place in October 2023 and saw the UKSPF grant awarded to St. George's Theatre in Great Yarmouth, to promote safety, accessibility, and engagement with the theatre via the installation of new bollards to prevent unsafe parking and enclose the historic theatre, along with the plaza and café.
