Families across Norfolk are invited to join in our celebrations for the first ever Norfolk Day this summer.
Held on Friday 27 July, Norfolk Day aims to celebrate all that is great about our county. Many of our council services are getting involved. Why not join in the fun, explore more about our great county and make the most of what it has to offer?
Norfolk Museums Service is supporting the day with themed events and activities. There are also plans to throw open the doors to Strangers’ Hall and The Museum of Norwich with free admission being offered to visitors on the day as part of ongoing summer support from the Norwich Freemen.
Norwich Castle will offer family activities inspired by the current exhibition, The Paston Treasure. Other events are planned at museums across Norfolk.
Libraries are hosting family-friendly StoryWalks, ideal for children aged three to seven. These 90-minute sessions are a brilliant way to share stories with the whole family. They’ll take place whatever the weather, so bring both your wellies and your sun hat. All children must be accompanied by an adult and the sessions will take place at libraries in Gaywood, Cromer, North Walsham, Great Yarmouth, Harleston, Tuckswood and at the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library.
If you’re interested in looking through historic documents and unusual maps, then Norfolk Record Office is inviting people to learn more about Norfolk. Places are free but must be booked in advance. For more details call 01603 222599.
Norfolk County Council is proud to support the campaign. More details about our plans can be found at www.norfolk.gov.uk/norfolkday
