2012 Cromer and Sheringham Crab & Lobster Festival

A feast of fun, food, art, music, heritage and entertainment.

The Crab & Lobster Festival is a weekend celebration of the coastal towns of Cromer and Sheringham and their essential crab and lobster fishing industries - the unrivalled combination of North Norfolk´s premier seaside towns.

Over the weekend numerous free, accessible and fun events take place.

The aims of the Festival are to involve people who live and work in the area helping foster a real sense of community (and fun), raise money for local charities and benefit local businesses by attracting more visitors to this wonderful part of the world. Since 2010 the Festival has raised over £16,500 for local charities.

In 2011 an estimated 20,000 people enjoyed the Festival weekend and thousands more took part in the Festival’s Deckchair Art Trail helping to extend the Tourist Season.
