The Wind In The Willows, Maddermarket Theatre, Fri 31st August – Sat 1st September

Raveningham Country Fair, Thurlton, Sat 1st – Sun 2nd September
It’s safe to say that Norfolk has its ‘fair’ share of country events, but RavFair, a traditional threshing fair which celebrates everything to do with local farming, is a fete with a difference. Its 41st year will see everything from steam engines and classic cars to live music, beer and cider tents, equestrianism and birds of prey. Oh, and if that isn’t enough, there’s a Wuffa Viking display too. Unmissable stuff!
Book tickets – £5 on the door and under 16’s go FREE.
Film In A Wood, Beachamwood, Sat 1st September
What could be better than a night in the forest beneath the stars? A night in the forest beneath the stars, watching Patrick Swayze on a big screen, of course! Moth In A China Shop and their sponsor, Mr Hugh’s, will be showing an outdoor screening of Dirty Dancing in the idyllic setting of Larchwood. Hot and cold food (including popcorn) will be available to purchase and if you’d like to make an evening of it, camping pitches are also available.

North Norfolk Food & Drink Festival, Holkham Hall, Sat 1st – Sun 2nd September
Holkham Hall is renowned for holding Muddy-worth events, and this will be no exception.

Not only that, but it’s set in the beautiful grounds of the Walled Garden and there’ll be plenty of activities and entertainment for children too. This is definitely one that’s top of our Muddy list!
Entry – Free with £3 charge for parking.
Norwich Thai Festival, Eaton Park, Sat 1st – Sun 2nd September
This is another event for the foodies, although the festival isn’t just about Thai cuisine.

Book tickets £4 per Adult and under 12s go free.
