Sheringham 40s Weekend, Sheringham, Friday 14th – Sunday 16th September
The annual Sheringham 40s weekend is so much more than a few flags and some bunting. If you want to see towns transformed, then hop on the North Norfolk steam trains and travel the line to Weybourne and Holt. You can listen to live music from bands and singers, watch the local swing dancers in action and browse through hundreds of fascinating pop-up vintage stalls in all three towns. At night, the pubs and bars come alive with wartime classics and the party doesn’t end until the Victory Parade on Sunday. This is escapism at its best and as costumes are essential, there’s no better excuse to buy a new vintage frock.
All the town centre events are free but you will need to purchase tickets to ride the steam trains (once bought, you can make as many trips as you like)
Ciderfest, The Brisley Bell, Saturday 15th September

Parent & Baby Show, UEA Sportspark, Sunday 16th September
