Joining up once again with About With Friends - their workshop has created more than 80 finely crafted portholes, all to be decorated by local artists, school groups and enthusiasts. They will be on display in time for the festival - Pick up a leaflet from the Tourist Information Offices, or elsewhere around the town and local area.These 3 stunners are from Banningham Crown Pub, Overstrand Garden Center and Gallery Norfolk
In 2016 we teamed up with wonderful local charity "About With Friends" who hand-crafted our specially designed beach huts in their Cromer workshop. This active and energetic charity supports people with learning disabilities and, they also offer gardening and catering services, they also run a super community cafe in Tucker Street, just behind Cromer church.
Our sample hut was decorated inside with a deep sea diving theme, and we were delighted by the 101 wonderfully decorated huts which duly appeared. The ideas and creativity shown by all the entries was truly astonishing, the trail attracted people from far and wide, and was a great way to explore the towns and surrounding area.
Each piece is sponsored by local businesses and individuals, decorated by local artists and groups, displayed around town, publicised in the Art Trail leaflet, then auctioned later in the season. Following the trail is fun for all the family and auction day in August is another great Crabster Festival Event combined with The World Pier Crabbing Championships too!
