Staff from North Norfolk District Council will be working round the clock to help ensure Cromer Carnival is a stunning success.

From ensuring public toilets are open till 10pm through to sponsoring the Screen on the Sea vintage film display outside the Cromer Museum from 12noon to 7pm on Wednesday 16th August.

The carnival week will see a celebration of the district’s Baggot Billies with Environmental Service workers out and about to explain more about the herd and why the Council has ‘employed’ the goats to keep the vegetation under control.

Our sports and leisure team will be leading the way with a range of children’s activities on the Tuesday at the Carnival Field along with a smoothie bike – encouraging people to get fit and be healthy.

While people will be able to hire beach cricket kits to emulate their cricket heroes; the kits are available from Cromer’s foreshore officer Paul Mason for a £10 deposit.

North Norfolk District Council’s Tourist Information Centre will be promoting events to residents and summer visitors.

As well as organising events the Council team will be out supporting the community by:

  • ensuring the car parking is open and available at our car parks, Runton Road and Cabbell Park
  • ensuring the town is looking its best with additional litter patrols
  • hiring a toilet trailer to ensure there are additional public toilets for event visitors

Cllr Maggie Prior, North Norfolk District Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure said: “Our carnivals are a great celebration of seaside life and Cromer’s carnival is definitely a must-see event. I’d encourage everyone to come down to the town and enjoy the carnival atmosphere; there’s so much to see and do – and it supports our local businesses and retailers.”

Cromer Carnival Week runs 12th to 18th August with Carnival Day Wednesday 16th August.
