Secret Norfolk: what’s on in summer 2018

Warning: This feature is now out of date

Summer in Norfolk is buzzing this year! Attempting to make the most of the longer days, come rain or shine, Norfolk will have its best face on with both free and ticketed events galore! These are just some of the ones I’m planning on visiting this month…

Fireworks at Great Yarmouth

30 June – 13 July: Festival Too

Festival Too is a free, unticketed event in King’s Lynn. Kicking off with fireworks at the launch party on the 30 June, there’s a great line of music planned over the first three weekends of July, plus you can enjoy street entertainment during the day on the Saturdays. Find out more:
