Great Yarmouth will be immersed in sound as a music festival returns this weekend.

The Yarmonics Sound and Music Festival will take place at multiple venues around the town until Sunday, celebrating the sounds, people and places of Great Yarmouth

This year’s free festival revolves around the theme of human and planetary health, with performances by regional and international artists taking place in St George’s Park, Primeyarc Art Gallery and Market Square.

Over the weekend, visitors can view an installation by Dutch artist Gijs Gieskes on Great Yarmouth beach, join a wild choir and soak up the vibes of a gong bath.

On Fridays at 6 p.m., musicians are encouraged to join the Hard Edges improv collaboration, which will be held at Market Place.

A wild choir workshop, led by jazz trumpeter Phil Minton, will take place at the Colossal Youth art studio on King Street from 2pm on Saturday.

Sunday, the Minster will be the scene of a gong bath with sacred sounds from 11 a.m., composter Charlotte Keeffe will perform on the pier at noon, and Japanese artist Ryoko Akama will perform at the Primeyarc art gallery in from 4 p.m.
