The Magnificent Seven, Amy Robsart Hall, Syderstone – Sat 28 Jan:
With the cinema costing an arm and a leg these days (why is that?), there’s nothing better than catching a classic movie in a make-shift theatre, and where better than a community village hall? This Saturday, Amy Robstart Hall will be showing a remake of the classic western directed by Antoine Fuqua and starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt.
Swan Lake, Theatre Royal, Norwich – Sat 28 Jan:
The greatest romantic ballet of all time is brought to life by Tchaikovsky’s haunting and unforgettable score. From the impressive splendour of the Palace ballroom to the moon-lit lake where swans glide in perfect formation, this compelling tale of tragic romance has it all. Two performances: at 2.30pm & 7.30pm.
Sheringham Park Run – Sheringham Park, Sheringham – Sat 28 Jan:
With the rise in themed gyms and gizmos to help us keep fit – but essentially keep us indoors and plugged in – there’s nothing better than a free run in nature’s finest landscapes. This weekly, 5km timed run is the perfect way to get fit while engaging in the local community – children and dogs on leads are also welcome.

Snowdrop Walks – Oxburgh Hall, Oxburgh – Sat 28 – Sun 29 Jan:
There aren’t many silver linings in winter, but majestic snowdrops – with their dropping heads and whiter than white petals – is one. Join one of the Hall’s Garden Stewards on a walk through the beautiful carpet of snowdrops and aconites organised by The National Trust.
