I’m thinking ‘A Night at the Museum’ with Ben Stiller!

Here’s your chance to let the kid’s imaginations go into overdrive while exploring these amazing buildings after dark. The Castle Museum would be my personal pick – all those stuffed animals, the Egyptian Mummy and the dungeons!!!

Time & Tide, Elizabeth House and Toll House also taking part!

Rum Festival 2018, The Open, Norwich, Fri 18 – Sat 19 May

Oooooh I know – Rum Festival cocktail team who will mix you some of the tastiest rum cocktails on the planet!

Book tickets £10 – £12.50

Norfolk & Norwich Festival Garden Party, Chapelfield Gardens, Norwich, Sat 19 and Sun 20 May

A diary definite if you have kids – the Garden Party is free and is always jam packed with fun activities. If the sun is shining you can laze around the park, dip in and out of performances, enjoy some yummy street food and maybe even finish the day with a glass of something refreshing in the Adnams Spiegal Tent.

Think of ‘Summertime’ as the soundtrack to the day and you’re on the right wave length!

The Ragroof Players Present: Ragroof Tea Dances All the Jazz, Speigal Tent, Norwich, Sat 19 May

Flappers a-go-go! Relive the Roaring 20’s with the Charleston, Black Bottom and All That Jazz. Think Bugsy Malone, The Great Gatsby, and Thoroughly Modern Millie!
Vintage tunes, dazzling dance displays, and whirlwind instant dance classes to ease you onto the floor.
Tea and cake will be served, plus the bar will be open for anyone who fancies a crafty tipple.

Struggling to get in touch with your inner self? I personally wish I could just switch off my inner dialogue for 5 mins!!

The Mind Body Spirit Yoga & Wellness Extravaganza has over 100 exhibitors who might be able to inspire, nurture and stroke your aura.

Pay on the door

Crab & Lobster Festival, Cromer and Sheringham, Sat 19 – Sun 20 May

The Crab and Lobster Festival is always a lively weekend up at the coast. The fun starts on Friday night with a traditional seaside variety concert at the Famous Pier Pavilion Theatre in Cromer and continues over the weekend with cookery demonstrations, sandwich competitions, crabbing, art trails and live music.

If you love seafood, this is one not to miss!
