We have gathered some great events in Norfolk for this weekend
- Festival Too, King's Lynn (Jun 29-Jul 13)
For three consecutive weekends Festival Too takes over the streets of King's Lynn. The opening day of the free festival of street entertainment includes clown shows, jugglers, puppets and balloon modelling during the day and then more fun from 8pm, plus free fireworks too, at King's Staithe Square at 10.30pm.
The beautiful grounds of the walled garden at Holkham will once again become the backdrop for Luna Cinema. The grounds will be transformed into the ultimate setting for two nights of blockbuster cinema under the stars. You are invited to bring your blankets, chairs and picnics and join for two of the biggest films of the last few years. Check event pages (linked above) for times.
