Beccles is always a delightful place to be, but this August Bank Holiday the town is even more vibrant. We’ve put together a handy guide to the best August Bank Holiday Events in and around Beccles, to make sure you don’t miss out.
Bank Holidays are the time for barbecues, and the King’s Head and Queen’s Jules in Bungay Marketplace are combining a huge barbecue with a fun karaoke evening for all the family on Sunday. With Carlsberg at £2.50 a pint and delicious homemade burgers, it’s an evening not to be missed.
Sunday’s Pirate Promenade kicks off the festivities in Lowestoft, as legions of volunteers don pirate gear to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. Kids will love the spectacle of hundreds of fearsome pirates. If you want to join in, participants’ tickets are £10, and come with a free pirate hat.
If you love the roar of enormous engines, make sure you don’t miss out on the East Coast Truckers Convoy, which passes through Beccles on Sunday at around 5:30pm. On the return leg of their journey to Norwich, the trucks will be joined by The Beach Radio’s Beach Bunny vehicle.
Nearby, Oulton Broad’s August Bank Holiday firework display has become an annual institution, and this year is set to be the biggest yet. As usual, the Lowestoft Lions Club will be holding their Gala Day at Nicholas Everitt Park, and as usual the gala will offer fabulous food, entertainment and fun for all. The firework display kicks off at 9pm.
So if you want to get the most out of this August Bank Holiday Weekend, head down to Beccles!
