Three flags were unveiled yesterday (Saturday) in Cromer to signal the launch of the town’s jubilee celebrations.
The town mayor Gwen Smith opened the flags on the temporary flag-pole in North Lodge Park. They included the Union flag, the Diamond Jubilee flag, and the Cromer crest.
After months of planning, led by the town council and supported by other town groups, more than 30 events have been lined up over the long weekend.
And the celebrations continue today with one of the highlights of the weekend - a “Cromer on screen” projected in a marquee in North Lodge Park gardens this evening.
There will also be a free live band - Rade and Friends - in the jubilee marquee this evening from 8pm.
On the main celebration day tomorrow (Monday) there will be a day of family games, picnics and music which will see North Lodge Park transformed into the Jubilee gardens for a day.
Families are encouraged to bring their picnics, get dressed up and spend the day listening to live music, soaking up the party atmosphere and taking part in traditional village games.
From 7pm the Idunnos will be play the Jubilee marquee as people gather to parade to the cliff top to light the Cromer Jubilee beacon.
The procession will begin outside Cromer Church from 9.30pm and continue along the cliff path to the east of Cromer. The beacon will be lit to a live performance from a solo guitarist.
On Tuesday the festivities will continue with a children’s tea party on the pier, including Punch and Judy, face painting, a climbing wall, live music, fancy dress competitions and a disco.
