We hope you enjoyed the 50th Anniversary Carnival in 2019. Here's the video for the Wednesday - our thanks to Craig and James, the camera team and to Craig who was the editor for this one. Let's get it around the world - give it a share from its Youtube site. The book looking back over 50 years plus of Cromer Carnival is available at £5.00 in town at Merchant's Place and at the Old Rock Shop Bistro.

And here's the video for Carnival Sunday 2019.

If you've watched the video below from 2001, you'll see that most of the week turned out fine - but with our video here from the crownings of 2000 and 2001, you see that the Sunday morning of 2001 wasn't quite like that! But Norman knew how to make us all laugh ...

Here's a video sequence from Carnival week 2001. If you were in the Children's Fancy Dress, your children will enjoy seeing it!

This year we're celebrating 50+ years of the current series of Carnivals. Our appeal for pictures brought in hundreds of images - some from earlier Carnivals! Here's the first of our 'nostalgia' sequences.

Another video full of images from the last 50 years is here!
