Call for local interviewees!
Local arts and regeneration organisation SeaChange Arts are currently looking for local people who would like to share their memories and stories about King Street in Great Yarmouth, as part of the Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) scheme. The THI scheme is a conservation led regeneration project for the St Georges and King Street area of Great Yarmouth, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and managed by Great Yarmouth Borough Council’s Conservation Department.
The audio interviews, as well as being placed in the Norfolk Record Office audio permanent archive, will be used as part of a film looking at the history of King Street through the recollections of people of Great Yarmouth. Lynsey Allett, filmmaker and oral historian working on the projects says: “We are looking to create a vivid and varied audio documentary, which captures the lively and interesting atmosphere of King Street over the last decades. These could be recollections about the houses, people or shops on the street, or events that have taken place on King Street over the years. To make this piece successful, we’d really love to hear about as many people’s memories as possible.”
The interviews will take place on Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th September at Maritime House in Great Yarmouth, or at a more convenient place for the interviewee. Local people will be interviewed by Lynsey Allett and her assistant.
If you would like to share your memories of King Street in Great Yarmouth, please contact Lynsey Alett on firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Becca Clayton at SeaChange Arts on 01493 846550

Great Yarmouth Masterpieces
Saturday 1 October to Sunday 4 March 2012
Sea View by J.S.Cotman, c1810-20
Discover Great Yarmouth through the eyes of the Norwich School of Artists in this exhibition of paintings and drawings.
This delightful exhibition of paintings and drawings from Norfolk Museums & Archaeology Service collections includes atmospheric views of local landmarks – the beach, jetty and quay side – by artists such as John Sell Cotman, John Crome and Joseph Stannard.
In the 19th century, Norfolk was home to this close-knit group of painters, who formed the first regional group of artists in England. They were inspired by Great Yarmouth, with its bustling quay side and growing popularity as a holiday destination. And as many potential patrons and benefactors lived by the quay, some of the artists chose to make Yarmouth their home.
A programme of talks and family activities complements the exhibition.
For details visit www.museums.norfolk.gov.uk
Admission to the whole Museum £4.80 adults / £4.10 concession / £3.50 Young person (4-16yrs) / under 4’s FREE / Adult in family group £4.00
Until 31 October: Mon – Sun 10am – 5pm
From 1 November: Mon-Fri 10am – 4pm, Sat & Sun 12noon-4pm

OPENING EVENT: wednesday 7th December 2011 at 10.00 am
St. Nicholas Church Preservation Trust and the Parish of St. Nicholas have invited entries for the Tree/Crib Festival, which is hoped will be innovative, with both traditional trees and cribs and also those that are out of the ordinary. Imagination and lateral thinking were encouraged with the aim of creating a festival that will stand out from the other festivals in the area. 79 entries have been submitted.
As this is a fund-raising event for the fabric and organ of St. Nicholas Church a charge of £10 was asked for each exhibit (£5 for schools and colleges).
A charge of £2/adult will be made for those coming to see the festival (accompanied children under 16 years of age are free). Free entrance for exhibitors. There will be an opening ceremony on Wednesday 7th December at 10am. A trophy will be presented for the best tree or crib voted for by the public. They will be presented at the Mayor’s Carol Service on Friday 9th December in the evening.
A “Hunt the Snowman” competition will be organised for children.
The event will take place from Wednesday 7th to Saturday 10th December 2011 from 10.00am-4.00pm with a late opening until 7.30pm on Wednesday 7th December.
