The spectacular event, which is taking place at the renowned Venetian Waterways, is set to take the town by storm with its bright blazing fire sculptures and mesmerising artistic acts.

Extraordinary performances are organised daily from October 21 through to November 6, excluding Monday November 1 and Tuesday November 2. Starting from dusk, the autumnal evenings will provide the perfect backdrop for the bright and bold entertainment.

The line-up of assorted installations includes local artists such as visual artist and maker Katy Kingston from Gorleston and Great Yarmouth based film and projection artist Matthew Harrison. More national commissions include famous mechanical sculptor Paka, who has worked extensively in Europe and the UK for 25 years. Plus, Gorilla Circus, a Great Yarmouth regular, who has created incredible flame arches and Christingle carousel.

Joe Mackintosh, director of Out There Arts, said: "Fire on the Water will be an exciting addition to the borough's existing artistic offer of live outdoor performance and circus and will help launch the borough as an all-year round destination for residents and visitors. This boost of increased visitor footfall during October and November will support local business, improving our town's economic resilience.

"Building on Out There Art's reputation for producing artistically diverse, high quality, accessible events, plus the enormous popularity of Out There Festival, it is envisaged Fire on the Water will be able to draw in a large volume and broad spectrum of new and existing audiences and visitors from local, regional and national locations."

Cllr Carl Smith, leader of the council, said: "Fire on The Water is looking to be an exciting and spectacular experience for everyone to enjoy, so be quick to get your tickets before they sell out.

"I know I'm not alone when I say it's brilliant to have an event to finally look forward to, especially one of this size and grandeur. The 15-day event should bring welcome trade to our local businesses at a time when the visitor economy is usually finished for the year.

"As always, the safety of our residents is paramount, but we are ensuring the event can go ahead regardless of any social distancing restriction being in place."

Tickets can be purchased https://outtherearts.org.uk/fire-on-the-water/.

Fire on the Water is funded by The Norfolk Strategic Fund (NCC), Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government, Interreg Experience, Visit Great Yarmouth, Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Out There Arts.
