Coast Arts

(Cromer and Sheringham Art and Literary Festival)

COAST ARTS incorporates a wide range of art forms into a local festival including: painting, sculpture, dance, theatre, literature, film, poetry, music, photography, installations, workshops & many other diverse events.

It has taken 6 years of successful October festivals to evolve from the Cromer and Sheringham Art and Literary Festival to this year’s COAST ARTS. More than a festival, more than a week in October, Coast Arts will be visible all year culminating in the traditional half term focus. Not that it’s a change, just a quiet revolution, just adding to the success.

COAST Mission

The object of COAST is to promote and provide access to the arts in the Cromer and Sheringham areas, celebrating the variety and quality of work produced in the local area and creating a vision to share for the common good – giving local communities and visitors the opportunity to experience local, regional and national creativity.

Please look at our submissions page if you want to contribute to the programme.

Coast Arts 2016The COAST Organisation

We have a part-time paid co-ordinator and treasurer, but the main hands-on work is achieved by a small group of volunteers. Artists wishing to take part should be aware that they must take personal responsibility for their event, and work in partnership with the COAST organisation.



Help support us when using the internet.  We’ve signed up with EasyFundraising so you can support us doing things online without any cost to you!


There are lots of ways that you can support the COAST festival by sponsorship and advertising options.  Find out more.


And we’re always looking for new volunteers to join our merry gang.
