Description

The 2010 Great Yarmouth Maritime Festival takes place at the beginning of september every year, on South Quay, when traditional tall ships, expedition vessels, steam drifters and lifeboats will be moored on South Quay for visitors to admire and go aboard. The Festival is a riot of colour and maritime music, with a large main stage featuring performances, shanty groups, folk bands, choirs and brass bands and two other entertainment areas, all with bars. Land-lubbers who prefer to keep their feet firmly on terra-firma will have plenty to keep them entertained. Shanty and maritime music will be performed throughout the festival at three different venues up and down South Quay, the Main Stage, The Fo'c'sle and in Horatio's Bar with a packed programme of artists, including the Newfoundland dogs and their amazing water rescue displays. Painting, ceramics, knot tying, net mending, boat building and lace making will all be on display in the popular demonstrator's marquee. The Feast of Fish marquee will whip up some delicious fish dishes. Walk about entertainment includes Horatio Herring and Mrs H too! Lord Admiral Nelson will be surveying the scene, and this year accompanied by Lady Emma too. Festival-goers should also watch out for loud bangs along the quayside as well as the East Norfolk Militia go on parade.
