Mouth-watering new food festival set to take over Great Yarmouth

A new food festival celebrating Great Yarmouth's diverse food and drink offerings will take place this March.

The Flavours event will take place over the weekend beginning March 25 and will showcase the broad variety of cuisines available along King Street, with a road closure allowing businesses to expand outside to create a 'street party' atmosphere.

Food and drink firms from the wider area can also get involved, with applications for stalls now open.

A temporary food market will be held on the piazza outside St Georges Theatre, alongside live cooking, and events in the theatre.

Chalets are available to hire at just £30 for the entire weekend, or businesses can book a pitch and bring their own gazebos for just £20.

Restaurants, cafes, and food stalls across the borough are encouraged to get involved. This could mean offering offers or discounts over the weekend or adding a special Flavours dish or cocktail to their menu, showing off the best of their wares.

Reprezent Project, a local community art organisation, will be attending and providing free dynamic and inclusive artistic, creative, and alternative cultural activities and workshops for all the family to enjoy.

Cllr Carl Smith, leader of Great Yarmouth Borough Council, said: "We are so excited to have another unique and exciting event for our residents and visitors to look forward to this year, with this event being the grand finale our 'See Great Yarmouth In A Different Light' project.

"Great Yarmouth has a rich variety of international cuisines on offer, and we really want to shine a light on them and encourage people to try some new Flavours."
