A celebration of 150 years of the RNLI in Sheringham will take place on Sunday, July 16.

Events will start with a grand parade at the Station Road car park to Lifeboat Plain at 1pm.

A plaque will then be unveiled on the wall of Oddfellows Hall, Sheringham’s first RNLI lifeboat station, to record 150 years of Sheringham RNLI.

Events on the main stage on Lifeboat Plain will include competitions to dress as quickly as an RNLI crewman, and a celebration of the RNLI’s original lifeboat, the Duncan. There will be sea songs performed by Sheringham Primary School children and the chance to sing along with the Sheringham Shantymen before the finale.

Visitors will be able to marvel at the detail and accuracy of the model lifeboat exhibition in the Chequers car park, and see the RNLI lifeboat that saved more aircrew in the Second World War than any other at the Sheringham ‘Mo’ Museum.
