Don't miss these amazing festivals...

Holt Festival – held each July, this week-long festival is a celebration of high-culture and headline acts in the fields of art, music, poetry and performance.

Crab and Lobster Festival – located in Sheringham and Cromer, this weekend festival, held each May, is a riot of food, live music, art trails and Morris dancing!

1940’s Weekend – step back in time with this September festival based in Holt and Sheringham, linked by the Poppy Line steam railway.  Expanding each year, visitors can join in and dress-up in vintage dress, or simply visit and watch what promises to be a marvellous celebration of our wartime and post-war heritage.

Folk on the Pier – titled ‘The Best Gig on the North Sea’, this weekend festival on Cromer Pier applauds the cultural offering of all things folk.  Book quick, as it’s usually a sell-out.

Norfolk and Norwich Festival – although based mainly in Norwich, this globally-praised cultural celebration has expanded to venues including Felbrigg Hall in recent years.  Covering two weeks, it is one of the country’s best and most recognised festivals.  A reason to holiday alone.

Out There Festival – this International Festival of Circus and Street Art is over a decade old, and gets better each year.  Based in Great Yarmouth each September, it’s a crazy and sensational riot of colour, performance and skills, and promises to blow you mind.  You will never be quite the same again!
