Young people are being encouraged to show off their talents for a festival along the North Norfolk coast.

Coast arts festival is widening its net to encourage people to sign up for North Norfolk’s Got Talent which will run in town and village venues over September, leading up to a grand final in October.

The festival takes place in North Norfolk over October 23-31, the school half term holiday, and aims to incorporate a wide range of art forms including dance, theatre, film, music and photography.

Secretary Barry Meadows said North Norfolk’s Got Talent had primarily been organised to appeal to young people but it was open to anyone to take part.

“Coast was launched six years ago and this year we wanted to something a bit different,” he said.

Heats will be taking place are taking place on September 4 at Coronation Hall in Mundesley, September 11 at Davenport’s Magic Kingdom in North Walsham, September 18 at Merchant’s Place in Cromer and September 25 at Holt Community Centre.

A fifth audition date will be realised later. There will then be two semi-finals taking place on October 16 at Davenport’s and October 22 at the Lighthouse in Sheringham, followed by the grand final on Cromer pier on October 30.

During the festival week there will also be art and storytelling workshops at venues along the coast and a photography competition with the theme of Littoral Living, the highs and lows. Littoral means of or relating to the shore of a lake, sea, or ocean.

For the people who like literature, the festival has announced that the well-known author Lynne Truss will be doing a talk on the pier on the Wednesday evening of festival week.
