The principal funder of the popular event is Visit Great Yarmouth, which aims to bring together the local tourism and business community to promote the borough and encourage residents and visitors to enjoy all the town has to offer.
Some of the highlights of this year’s festival include exhilarating attractions such as The Ken Fox Wall of Death, Red Dragon Monster Truck Rides and On The Edge Motorbike Stunt Team.
The festival takes place on Great Yarmouth seafront, where visitors can take in the stunning views while enjoying the full range of activities and attractions. There will also be a number of interactive exhibits, trade stands and displays.
Lyndon Bevan, chairman of Visit Great Yarmouth said: “We are really looking forward to working with Great Yarmouth Borough Council again to bring our residents and visitors Visit Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival 2023.
“Helping East Anglian Air Ambulance raise vital funds for their cause, we are hoping for a great turnout and for members of the public to donate generously. They have a fundraising target of £17.2m this year and we are proud this festival will be able to help.”
An East of England Air Ambulance spokesperson said: ‘’We are incredibly grateful to Great Yarmouth Borough Council for supporting us with the Wheels Festival this year. EAAA is an independent charity providing life-saving critical care 24 hours a day. We receive no regular government funding and rely almost entirely on public support. Each mission costs on average £3,750 and we need to raise £17m a year from charitable donations. Fundraising events such as these ensure we can continue providing our life-saving service in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire 365 days a year.’’
