A Feast of Fun, Food, Art, Music & Heritage
Our crab and lobster festival is a lively weekend celebration of two fine North Norfolk coastal towns, Cromer & Sheringham. Historically great rivals, but now joining together as two of Norfolk's premier seaside destinations.
The festival is dedicated to promoting our local seafaring heritage and active fishing community. The fun starts on Friday night with a traditional seaside variety concert at the Famous Pier Pavilion Theatre in Cromer and continues over the weekend on Evington Lawns in Cromer. The festival celebrates our proud crab and lobster delicacies, as well as local restaurants, chefs, crafts, chutney’s, jams, cakes, charcuterie and so much more. Come and experience all that the Norfolk Norfolk Coast has to offer.
From Festival Weekend until August Bank Holiday Sunday we have an art trail that emcumbances both towns. These items are then auctioned on August Bank Holiday Sunday with all proceeds being donated to local charities and organisations.
