Superflashy news flash! The hottest local goss

Sound the alarm! We've sniffed out the fun Norfolk news you NEED to know about this week - from freebie theatre to a cool new foodie emporium.

BARGAIN THEATRE!

Pinching those pennies, but desperate for a night out? We’ve got your back! Booking is now open for Norwich Theatre’s Love Your Local Theatre Campaign (in participation with the National Lottery), which lets you nab bargain tickets for fab shows on next month at Norwich Theatre Royal and Norwich Playhouse.

We’ll be making a date for the Pantaloons production of Great Expectations on 14 and 15 March, an anarchic update on the Dickens classic.

SNOWDROP HUNT

It’s snowdrop season, which means spring is on the horizon! And while it’s possible to spot those pearly beauties all over Norfolk, between now and 27 February you can catch them in all their glory at some off-the-beaten-track spots via the National Garden Scheme‘s annual Snowdrop Festival.

The likes of Hindringham Hall and Horstead House will be opening their gates, but make sure you book a ticket in advance via the NGS website.

FOODIE ALERT

Ever walked through Norwich’s fabulous Royal Arcade, home to great stores like Macarons & More and Sonkai jewellers, and wished that some of the space was less underused? Well, the art nouveau building is set to house a foodie hotspot, opening this summer.

The amazing team behind Mysabar, the pop-up winter bar tucked under Norwich castle, are set to launch a market-style food hall inside the Arcade’s empty former Jamie’s Italian restaurant. Naturally, the focus will be on local traders and independent businesses – we can’t wait to find out more.

THE ALBATROSS RETURNS

The quayside at Wells-Next-The-Sea, while still beautiful and buzzing with life, just hasn’t been the same since famous Dutch clipper The Albatros (built in 1899) left two years ago.

There was just nothing quite like sitting on that deck with a massive pancake and an enamel mug of coffee, watching kids hurling themselves down the muddy banks of the creek.

Well, here’s some good news! The old gal is set to come back no later than Easter after a massive renovation. The exact nature of her return remains to be confirmed, but the word on the street is that both a b’n’b and a coffee shop could be on the cards…
