Enjoy a glass of warming mulled wine or local mulled gin while listening to Christmas carols from Norfolk’s own Pavilion Brass Quintet who will be playing festive tunes outside The Forum each day. Plus, there’ll be Christmas carols and seasonal songs from a series of local singers, as well as performances from the delightful dancers from Busybodies Stage School in Dereham on the Saturday morning.
There will also be all sorts of food and drink stands outside on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from hot waffles and gourmet doughnuts to delicious Norfolk Rum. There’ll even be festive treats for your dogs!
Plus on the Saturday and Sunday visitors to the Festive Fair will once again have the chance to see some adorable miniature donkeys from Mini Donks whose animals help people with well-being, while a new attraction, Evie’s Owls, will also be there on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The Festive Fair at The Forum is always a popular event, attracting thousands of visitors, and traders and locals alike are pleased to see it back in action again this year. Open from 11am to 7pm on the Thursday, from 10am to 6pm on the Friday and Saturday, and from 10am to 4pm on the Sunday, everyone is welcome and entry is free.
