The ‘ultimate’ Guide to What’s On in Norfolk this week!


Carols In The Pub with Cawston Brass Band, The Fat Cat Brewery Tap, Mon 17th December

Prefer your Christmas carols in a less formal setting? If the pub is your church, then the Fat Cat Brewery Tap (Norfolk CAMRA Pub Of The Year 2018) is the place to be! Mince pies, more beer than you can shake a candy-cane at and the Cawston Brass Band playing all your favourite traditional festive songs throughout the evening. That’s our type of carol concert!



The Snowflake Extravaganza, Cathedral Of St John The Baptist, Norwich, Mon 17th December

The  beautiful interior of the Roman Catholic Cathedral will be transformed into a Snowflake Extravaganza for Break Charity as hundreds of whirling snowflakes fill the air.  With a festive market, carols, Father Christmas and mince pies, this is your chance to enjoy the magic of Christmas and support a very good cause too.



How Hill Christmas Carol Concerts, Mon 17th & Tues 18th December

The halls of How Hill have been decked out in boughs of holly and are waiting to welcome visitors for mulled wine, mince pies and carols! Perfect if you like your Christmas to be traditional, warm and welcoming. We can almost hear the sleigh bells.
