Objectives

The Arts Festival grew out of an idea of trying to raise money for the St. Nicholas Preservation Trust (Now the Great Yarmouth Minister Preservation Trust) but, at the first meeting with a group of artists, one of them said “You will not make money out of art”.  Nevertheless, plans expanded to include not only visual art but music, theatre, films and heritage. The aims were to encourage people to develop an interest in art in all its forms and to take an active part in them. We want to show what remarkable talent exists in the Borough, to bring the various communities together, for the local population to develop a sense of pride in their town, to raise the aspirations of the young and to encourage more visitors to the town.
