Out There Arts Presents Fire On The Water Great Yarmouth!
Last week I was invited to the press launch of the brand new event Fire on the Water presented by Out There Arts, a magical, blazing display of fire installations and sculptures housed at the Venetian Waterway in Great Yarmouth. Last minute I couldn’t attend but I didn’t want to miss out so we went as a family group last night instead, and we were all mesmerised by the beauty!
A truly affordable event at just £6 for a family of up to six people which also donates to the non profit charity Out There Arts which is a non profit arts development charity delivering outstanding circus and street art for the community. They are based in Great Yarmouth but collaborate internationally and wowsers, if this event is anything to go by they’re certainly going places!
I don’t want to show you too much as it’s best seen in real life, most dramatic and beautiful! But, you walk the entire length of the Venetian Waterways with a slightly different route for those with wheelchairs or walking difficulties and then you loop around and walk back the other way so there’s lots to see!
Fire on the Water is something to enjoy after dark – perfect for this half term holiday and as the Venetian Waterway is transformed into something quite different it’s an incredibly entertaining way to while away an hour as you take in the dramatic and beautiful sights of fire on the water! So many mediums are used with fire being the bones and it’s so clever. We enjoyed it very much!
It’s worth noting that most slots are now booked up but… You can see the art from the street and from the beach. A different perspective of course and not as wonderful as being immersed in it but if you don’t want to miss it entirely then this is a way of getting to see some, if not all. You can (and should) donate regardless when there because it’s so worthwhile. There are buckets and even a place to add your card. A little goes a long way so if you do happen to be walking past, enjoying the sights, make sure a few pennies go in!
The cafe boating lake is open as usual (6pm – 9pm) and blankets are provided as you snuggle up for a hot chocolate and bite to eat. It’s a really lovely thing to do and with plenty of parking (or take a Greater Anglia Train from Norwich for just a short walk to the waterways) it’s easy to get to and inclusive for wheelchair and buggy needs.
A fab find that’s running from now until the 6th of November only!
We were invited as guests of Out There Arts.
