Great Yarmouth

Free event

Produced in partnership by Eastern Ear and originalprojects;, YARMONICS is a free festival of sound and new music that celebrates the sounds, people and places of Great Yarmouth. It features installations, performances, workshops with local groups, and talks.

2021 was the fourth YARMONICS festival, and included the creation of a Sound Map, hosting a growing collection of recordings from performances and enabling people to visit the location and listen to the work in situ, or explore from the comfort of their own home. Each red marker on the map represents a venue or site, click that marker to show all recordings from that venue or site. https://yarmonics-map.vercel.app/map-page

Over the years YARMONICS has invited a number of artists, musicians, academics and writers to create work that responds to specific spaces and places in Great Yarmouth including the Great Yarmouth Minster, The Hippodrome, The Empire, the Lydia Eva, the beach and many more.

In 2020, as a response to the Covide-19 pandemic, performances were recorded and uploaded to the website to enable artists to continue to work and audiences to continue to experience cultural activity. These recordings are still available to view at https://www.yarmonics.com/2020

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
