A drive to find more out of season festivals is among the ideas to promote tourism in the Cromer and Sheringham area.
The plan emerged from a forum of people from the leisure industry in and around the two towns.
Literary and arts events were among the suggestions which will now be explored by a joint publicity committee which has already been set up to boost the two resorts and the Runtons in between.
About 30 people attended an explanation day at Cromer's Community Centre where Sheringham mayor Noel Gant updated invitees on the progress made so far, and his Cromer counterpart Hilary Thompson outlined the aims of the initiative.

Thoughts of running a fun day had not received much support and would be shelved as a joint venture, but could still be explored as a Cromer-only event.
