Now that our "Indian" summer has been and gone and the children are back to…
Well, that’s it! As of tomorrow, 1st December, the countdown to Christmas will officially begin. We’re very excited here at Hall Farm Cottages in Norfolk, after all it’s one of our favourite times of the year. If you’re planning a trip to Norfolk during December, here are few events happening around the area:
Up to 4th December, ‘No Hatred or Bitterness’, Norfolk Record Office
If you wanted to learn more about the hidden records and documents of Norfolk, then this is one event that you won’t want to miss. Not only will you be able to explore the secret documents that have never been made public, you can delve into a deeper look into Edith Cavell’s life and story. Edith Cavell was born in Norfolk and was a British nurse during the First World War. She is celebrated today for saving the lives of soldiers during WW1, by helping them escape from Belgium. She was later arrested and executing for treason, despite international pressure for mercy. Her execution was disapproved and criticised across the world. It’s a very interesting story!
4th to 6th December, Deepdale Christmas Markert
On the north Norfolk coast, you can expect to find the Deepdale Christmas Market this weekend. The market will be packed with independent traders, making it the perfect place to be for unique Christmas gifts.
Until 23rd December, the Great Yarmouth Real Ice Skating Rink
If you love ice skating and want to get all festive, then outdoor skating ticks off all the boxes. Just remember to wrap up warm!
Until 31st December, Lynn Lumiere
King’s Lynn will be lit up with exciting lights and mesmerising whirlpools appearing on iconic buildings, as well as ticking clocks and primeval plants. It’s truly magical! You could go as far to say its Norfolk’s version of Magic Kingdom’s Light Parade!
Until 3rd January, Build your own: Tools for sharing, Norwich Castle Museum
This event celebrates the revolutionary marketing world, featuring neurotic gardening robots, 3D printed prosthetic hands, and exploring new ways of repairing city spaces. It’s fascinating and worth heading over to if you have time.
