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.
