The Big Weekend!


All aboard for the Big Weekend!

Coming to Great Yarmouth on 1 and 2 February 2020, an exciting opportunity all adult members of Norfolk Scouts to come along for some learning, networking and socialising.


Get involved in what promises to be a fantastic fun weekend, that will be guaranteed to give your new year a boost.

You can come as a day delegate on either Saturday or Sunday or make a weekend of it including hotel accommodation staying at either the Burlington Palm Court or Marine Lodge hotels.

Activities will be taking place at a number of venues around the town.



If you’ve got any questions take a look at The Big Weekend Q&A and see if it is answered.

The programme for the weekend is really flexible and can be shaped entirely by you.

You will be able to take part in a selection of activities, sessions, workshops and downtime from six programme areas:


Café Burlington

A social hub offering an informal meeting place for chatter, coffee, informal meetings and creating conversation.

Use some time to validate modules or plan next year’s camp. The seats are comfy and the company good!

Drinks and snacks will be available all day and he Café bar will be open late with an entertainment schedule.

Out and About

A selection of nearby attractions and activities to take part in.

A chance to unwind and have fun but also explore programme and trip opportunities.

Some items may have an additional cost.



Hands On

Activities and have a go sessions for adults to try new things and remember old ones.

This area is all about practical skills and things to take back into a programme.

We’re focusing on activity badges and will give new and existiing leaders some confidence to try something new.


Out and About (at night)

As above but after dark!

Leave the hotel for some late night adventures in Great Yarmouth

This will be a free-flow casual affair where you can drop in and find out what suppliers can offer or make new contacts.
