Crab & Lobster Festival

Cromer & Sheringham

Porthole Auction
27 August 2017

Heritage Village

The Festival also celebrates our history & heritage... generations of fishermen have worked their boats from our beaches, braving all weathers to bring home the finest and freshest crabs, lobsters and seasonal fish. 


Local fishermen demonstrate pot mending & net braiding, and the ladies show the finest gansey knitting techniques.             They're always happy to answer your questions, have a bit of banter - and tell salty tales!


Crab dressing demonstrations & competitions are popular & great fun... Learn crab dressing from the experts.                   Plus tasty crab sandwiches – made the traditional way!


The Eastern Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority's giant fishtank. Staffed by experts happy to explain our local conditions and concerns, working to maintain a balanced ecological approach to sustainable inshore fishing.

Our lifeboat crews are a vital service in both our towns, over the weekend you'll spot them around town or offshore.                  A great bunch of people... always happy to help... and Stormy Sam is great for a cuddle!
