Oktoberfest, Open, Norwich, Fri 11th to Sat 12th October
Dig out your lederhosen, raise your steins in the air and celebrate Oktoberfest. Open will be transformed into a German themed Bierkeller – complete with authentic Bavarian beer, food and entertainment.

The Knitted House, Norwich Cathedral, Fri 11th Oct – Mon 28th October
I quite like a bit of therapeutic knitting and this is a fabulously creative fundraiser. Norwich Cathedral has teamed up with local homelessness charity St Martins for ‘The Knitted House’ project. The aim is to knit 4,677 scarves (the number of people who slept rough in England last year) to create a ‘Knitted House (which will be on display) and then each scarf will be sold to raise funds for a new accommodation project.

The Lovely Bones, Norwich Theatre Royal, Fri 11th & Sat 12th October
The book was chilling and I for one can’t wait to see The Lovely Bones – the unique coming-of-age tale about life after loss. With visually stunning staging and a 70’s soundtrack, this production promises to be an emotional and uplifting theatrical tour de force.
Book Tickets: from £10
Norfolk Creations Autumn Fair, Blakeney Church Hall, Sat 12th to Fri 18th October
Make a gentle start to your Christmas shopping at this week-long event in Blakeney (only 13 weeks to go!) where there will be artisans from across Norfolk showcasing their creations. Then head over to the The White Horse for a little Autumn tipple!
Jacqueline Wilson, Norwich Playhouse, Sun 13th October
The legendary Jacqueline Wilson, one of the UK’s bestselling and most beloved children’s authors, is coming to Norwich’s Playhouse to celebrate her new book – We Are The Beaker Girls. Jacqueline will invite us inside the mind of Tracy Beaker and her plans for the future. Book signing after the event. Eeeek – we can’t wait!
