The second May Bank Holiday is just over a week away, and if you are staying at our Norfolk holiday lodges over the weekend there are so many things to see and do, from festivals to exhibitions.

Norwich City of Ale – May 26 to June 5

A ten-day celebration over the Bank Holiday weekend is a great chance to sample the local beers and ales of Norwich. More than 45 pubs and 41 breweries are taking part with some 250 beers and ales available for you to try!

Wild in the City – May 21 to June 5

As the Norfolk Wildlife Trust turns 90 this year, the city of Norwich is celebrating with a two-week takeover. Join in the fun with stories of the nature and wildlife found in Norfolk, live footage from hides in the many nature reserves around Norfolk and more.

Fairy Fair at Sennowe Park – May 29 to May 30

The Fairyland Trust is now in its 15th year and returns with the Fairy Fair. The Norfolk charity is a great way to introduce families to flowers, wildlife and trees. The Fair has the perfect setting this year with the grounds and woodlands of Sennowe Park.

Norfolk and Norwich Festival – Ending May 29

You can catch the last few days of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival when staying at our holiday lodges. There are plays, performances, music, walks, dancing, food and more to enjoy at the festival, across a number of venues in Norwich and around Norfolk.

Mixed Exhibition at Riverside Art and Glass

This exhibition ends in September, so there is plenty of time to see it, and this mixed exhibition of all types of art is a hidden gem of the Norfolk art world. On display are glass pieces, paintings, prints, ceramics, crafts and jewellery.

Stray: Beneath the Surface at The Undercroft – May 16 to May 29

Stray is an exhibition of sculpture, expressive paintings, video and collaborative installations, produced by a group of artists from Cambridge. The images have a depth and meaning that will capture your own imagination.

Walk with Me at Felbrigg Hall – Ending May 29

Returning to the National Trust’s Felbrigg Hall Garden and Park, this walkscape lets you wander the woods and fields, creating your own cinematic experience with the landscape as your screen, and headphones provide the soundtrack with music, words and sound effects.
