SeaChange Arts is a registered charity. We work tirelessly throughout the year to secure funding to bring more cultural opportunities to the people of Great Yarmouth. We are committed to bringing dynamic, exciting opportunities for people to work alongside the best local, national and international artists and to make as much great art accessible to as many people as possible.
Our current funding focus is on three areas:
The Out There Festival
The Out There Festival has rapidly become one of the largest circus and street arts festivals in the country, renowned for its diverse and imaginative programme. Almost all of the shows are free. We need to develop alternate income streams for the festival to ensure that it remains that way.
The 2020 Out There Festival has been cancelled amid growing public health concerns about the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). The decision was made by Great Yarmouth Borough Council, following advice from Central Government and leading health experts, to cancel all mass gatherings until a review in October to try and contain the spread of the virus.

Our Community Programme…
The flagship of which is Drillaz, our circus school. This programme works with more than 400 local children each year, aged 8-18. Working alongside our professional tutors, the Drillaz participants report increased confidence, social skills and aspirations. Our aim is to secure the future of this programme and expand activities going forward.

We have sponsorship opportunities suitable and affordable for all businesses and individuals.

We aim to raise funds to purchase equipment & broaden activities & develop skills. If you would like to support this cause donations can be made here.
The Drill House Capital project
SeaChange acquired the Drill House in 2012. In 2015, we received £1.5 million from Arts Council England to begin the work to re-develop the building as an international centre for circus and street arts. The first phase of this work is drawing to a close and has turned the main hall into a fit-for-purpose circus and street arts facility. Over the coming years, we need to expand facilities, develop the front of house, make repairs to the building’s roof and many other developments that will support the expansion of our work and contribute to the regeneration of this area of Great Yarmouth.
