Perched on out the the east coast, closer to the continent than the capital, Out There has established an international reputation for its exceptional, innovative and diverse programme.

Breath-taking spectacle and quirky comedy combine in a festival woven through with world-class performance, family-friendly atmosphere and more than a fair dose of seaside silliness!  Regularly attracting more than 50,000 people, the festival blends iconic international acts and the finest UK performers with massive amounts of community participation, family fun and lots of hands-on things to do.

SeaChange Arts have developed a reputation for their international working.  The Out There Festival has grown on the back of significant EU projects including the ZEPA network which allowed us to bring iconic companies like Générik Vapeur to Great Yarmouth.

Out There has quickly built a national and international reputation for world class artistic quality, new and diverse work, regional artistic talent, international collaboration and innovative community engagement.

But all you need to know is Out There is just about the most amazing way to spend a day… and you don’t have to spend a penny!
