Iconic buildings of Great Yarmouth light up for trail of love competition

Six of Great Yarmouth's most iconic buildings are lit up to celebrate love this February, with the Council having launched a special "trail of love" for residents and visitors to enjoy.

GOBOs lighting up Arc Cinema with Cupid projections

For the last two weeks of February, special lighting is being projected on the Town Hall, Tollhouse, St George's Theatre, the Minster Church of St Nicholas, the Arc Cinema, and Gorleston Pavilion to create a stunning immersive experience.

Celebrating the theme of love, each chosen building is showcasing patterns of love hearts and cupid from Thursday, February 16. People are invited to snap a selfie and post it on socials using the hashtag #LoveGreatYarmouth to be in with a chance of winning a prize!

The categories to enter are for completing the entire trail and the most creative photo. Entries must be of you and a loved one, whether that's a partner, child, parent or pet - all entries are welcome! His Worship the Mayor will choose the winners.

Cllr Carl Smith, leader of the council, said: "Once again these lights are being used to highlight the borough's iconic buildings, this time to celebrate Valentine's Day.

"The trail of love is a free, family friendly activity which has been created for residents and visitors to enjoy throughout February."

The project is being supported by the government's Town Fund, as part of the See Great Yarmouth In A Different Light project. In Winter 2020, the project supported decorative new lighting in Great Yarmouth, Gorleston and Hemsby.
