Events Diary 2018 in North Norfolk

Events Diary - So much to do - so little time

There are several things that run throughout the year: Docking Market every Wednesday 9-1pm, Creake Abbey Farmers Market the 1st Saturday of every month. The RSPB in Titchwell runs events every week/month, lots of things for kids too. Holkham Estate runs many events, I have only included a few but the rest can be found here. Holkham - what's on. Wells beach cafe runs a weekly dog walk on Wednesday morning at 10am. There is also lots of up to date information that can be found on my Facebook page.

Visit North Norfolk also has a good list of local events.

All things Norfolk has a calendar with every event going.
