Norfolk Day - Friday 27 July

Join in our celebrations for the first ever Norfolk Day this summer.

Norfolk Day is on Friday 27 July and celebrates all that is great about our county.

Take part in the celebrations

Norfolk Museums will be supporting the day with themed events and activities.

Norwich Castle will have family activities inspired by the current exhibition, The Paston Treasure, and other events are planned at museums across Norfolk.

Strangers’ Hall and The Museum of Norwich are offering free admission on the day.

Norfolk libraries are hosting family-friendly StoryWalks, which are ideal for children aged three to seven.

These 90-minute sessions are a brilliant way to share stories with the whole family. They’ll take place whatever the weather, so bring both your wellies and your sun hat!

(All children must be accompanied by an adult and the sessions will take place at libraries in Gaywood, Cromer, North Walsham, Great Yarmouth, Harleston, Tuckswood and at the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library.)

If you’re interested in historic documents and unusual maps, then come along to the Norfolk Record Office and learn more about Norfolk. Places are free but must be booked in advance. For more details, contact Norfolk Record Office.
