Kett Event Guide
There are many things to do in Norfolk when you visit on your holiday. Norfolk is a place that offers something for everyone, and that’s reflected in the huge range of events taking place throughout the year across the county. With festivals, concerts, game fairs and markets, to the more unique celebrations like the Cromer Crab Festival, there’s never a dull moment.
Whatever the weather, there are events and attractions to suit all pockets and interests. From zoos to festivals, fairs and historic houses. The county is a great place to participate in many outdoor activities and sports, with the coast and broads both offering opportunities to go boating, sailing, kayaking, fishing, rock-pooling and more. For music lovers there are events like Cromer COAST art & literary festival, for film lovers there is Films Under the Stars at Holkham, and for animal lovers the Sandringham Horse Driving Trials in June.
Some visitors come to Norfolk so that they can attend a specific event, others like to know what’s going on while on holiday. So, we have pulled together The Kett Event Guide which highlights the more interesting things to do over the forthcoming weeks. Check back later to see more events added throughout the year.
If you require any advice on a particular event or in finding the perfect cottage for an event you are attending in the area, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Kett’s team of local expertise who are always happy to offer advice and guidance.

Take a trip out along the North Norfolk coast to watch the seals with Beans Boats from the small village of Morston. Situated along the A149 coast road between Blakeney and Wells-Next-The-Sea, it is a beautiful place to start your day out.
Beans Boats was started up in the mid 1930s by W.J Bean (TRIP) and his brother E.A.K Bean (KITCH). The business was later joined by Trip’s sons, John and Graham, after they left school in the late 1950’s.
The Beans Boat departure point is well sign posted and easily accessible. The quay at the bottom of Morston lane provides ample car parking (free to National Trust members).
ONCE YOU ARRIVE AT THE QUAY – LOOK FOR THE CREW WEARING THEIR ORANGE TOPS.
With a limited number of seats you are strongly advised to book to avoid disappointment.
