Great Yarmouth Beer and Cider Festival quenches bank holiday thirst

Great Yarmouth Beer and Cider Festival 2014


Pints were poured and thirsts were quenched at the seventh annual Great Yarmouth Beer and Cider Festival.

The festival, which started on Thursday and finished today with a relaxed Sunday lunchtime session, attracted about 1,200 people over the four days.

More than 50 different ales and 20 ciders were on offer at St George’s Theatre and festival-goers took advantage of a pop up beer garden on the theatre plain which was a new addition.

“This is the second year we’ve been at St George’s and again the atmosphere has been great,” said Yarmouth town centre manger Jonathan Newman who organises the event with Day Harvey.

“It brings a lot of people into Yarmouth; people who might not have come into the town centre for a while, they get the train in from Norwich and spend an afternoon or an evening here. And with the pavilion now open, they can get some food as well a pint.

As well as beer and cider, visitors enjoyed a line up o live music each day with bands and singers coming from all over Norfolk.

Anyone interested in performing at next year’s festival can get in touch with organisers now via the website,, Facebook or Twitter @GYBCFestival.


  • Dont be daft. I doubt he even knows where Yarmouth is let alone actually go to a function without his crawlers (sorry I mean guides).

  • Went on Friday lunchtime with my friends, we all had a great time and some of the ales and ciders were superb, well done to the organisers.
