What can I expect and what are the timings?

Make sure to have your eyes to the skies on Wednesday, January 1 as an impressive display by Titanium Fireworks kicks off the new year in style.

The event is back for its 21st year and attracts over 10,000 people, with more than 3,000 fireworks sent into the skies over the North Sea.

For those looking to cure those New Year's Eve hangovers, there will be a one-mile family fun run, organised by North Norfolk Beach Runners, with fancy dress encouraged at 3pm from the Cromer Pier Forecourt and registration starts at 2.30pm.

There will also be a torchlight procession at 4.30pm from Cromer Parish Church and you can purchase a £1.50 torch from outside Cromer Museum to take part.

There will also be many shops and cafes opening in the town all day to welcome visitors and the main display will take place at 5pm, with the fireworks fired from Cromer Pier.

Firework Committee chairman Pat West said: "As always, the advice is please arrive early and support the local businesses in town.

"There are several exciting new sequences within the main display which will be new to Cromer and we are very excited to show these to everyone."
