Organised by Great Yarmouth Borough Council with funding from Visit Great Yarmouth and additional sponsorship from Wellington Pier, people  are invited to join in the excitement as the festival takes over the Golden Mile in the town.

The festival, which takes place along Great Yarmouth seafront from Britannia Pier to the St Nicholas Car Park, offers free admission for visitors and those wishing to exhibit their vehicles. Volunteers from East Anglia Air Ambulance will be on hand spreading awareness about their life-saving charity, as well as collecting donations throughout the weekend to raise vital funds for its work.

The Visit Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival promises to be a spectacular event, featuring a thrilling line-up of activities, displays and entertainment for the entire family. With a mix of classic cars, motorcycles, scooters, trucks and unique custom vehicles, the event is a celebration of all things on wheels.

Festivalgoers should prepare to be amazed by high-octane, adrenaline-pumping stunt shows that will leave people on the edge of their seats as world-class professionals demonstrate their skills with mind-boggling tricks, daring jumps and gravity-defying manoeuvres, sure to captivate audiences of all ages.

The festival is designed to entertain the whole family - with children's activities and interactive displays there really is something for everyone to enjoy.

There will also be a wide range of automotive-related products and services to check out at the wide range of trade stands. From clothing and accessories to custom modifications and expert advice, enthusiasts can explore and engage with a variety of exhibitors.

Councillor James Bensly, Portfolio Holder for Tourism, Culture and Coastal Management at Great Yarmouth Borough Council, said: "We're thrilled to bring back the Visit Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival for another action-packed weekend thanks to the main sponsor of this popular event, Visit Great Yarmouth."

"This year's event promises to be bigger and better than ever, showcasing a diverse range of vehicles and providing non-stop entertainment for everyone. Whether you're a car enthusiast, a thrill seeker, or simply looking for a fun-filled, free family day out, the Visit Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival has something for you."
