Sea Fever 6 and Holocaust Memorial Day schedule of Events and Billing


Living as the world still is under the shadow of COVID, the festival’s plans for 2022, though ambitious, remain to be finalised.


As things stand at the beginning of the year, our focus is on Sea Fever 6. This will take as its theme the balance in society between the individual and the state. Giving it a suitably Norfolk twist, we are calling it, Doing Different?  


The festival’s set for three days around our usual date of the spring bank holiday. True to our roots in Poetry-next-the-Sea, we are planning a programme as strong as it is in poetry as prose. 


In the autumn we are also hoping to repeat the success of Sea Fever 4, a one-day event concentrating on all things maritime. This will be Sea Fever 7.


In the meantime, the festival is delighted to be associated with the Austrian Cultural Forum and Wells Maltings in a series of events on and around 27 January, marking Holocaust Memorial Day. The backdrop is an outstanding photographic exhibition on the Kindertransport, sur daskind. This will be in the Maltings' Handa gallery from Wednesday 19th - Saturday 29th January.    


On the 27th itself there will be a recording of a live screening of Tom Stoppard’s new play about his upbringing in pre-war Vienna: Leopoldstadt.


On Saturday 29th there will be three events, on the subject of Kindertransport and its connections with the east of England.
