The Cambridge Film Trust is to tour the Norfolk coast with screenings of archive footage dating back as far as the 1920s and highlighting the history and importance of Britain’s seasides.

The Screen-on-Sea programme will include footage of the Cromer Carnival from nearly 60 years ago and beachside rehearsals for the End of Pier Show in the 30s.

The Screen-on-Sea programme has sourced much of the footage from the UEA’s film archive and will include a weather forecasting donkey in Hunstanton, fishing in Wells and carnival celebrations in Cromer.

Councillor Tom FitzPatrick, leader of North Norfolk District Council, said: “Without a doubt there will be many people in our communities who will recognise grandparents or great grandparents in these pieces of film footage, and everyone will be able to travel back in time to see some of our most familiar coastal sites as they were, up to nearly a century ago.”

There will be a number of screenings between June 24 and September 10, including at Wells Carnival on July 30 and Cromer Carnival on August 16.
