What’s on

Christmas Market

Our popular Christmas Market returns this December with over 60 local and regional producers featuring artisan food, drink and gifts.

Helping you get into the festive spirit, Fakenham Town Band and Nelson’s Shantymen will be playing live music, and there’ll be plenty of tasty street food to tempt you.

Info on parking and what to bring

We don’t know if you’ve noticed but it’s been quite wet underfoot this last month. To help protect our beautiful parkland and ensure this popular event goes ahead, our wonderful team are busy behind the scenes organising alternative parking arrangements for everyone attending.

So, when you arrive please expect to be directed by our friendly team to different locations within the park. There will be some walking involved for most visitors. Blue Badge holders will be able to park in our main car park. We advise packing sensible footwear (wellies are perfect!) and warm, waterproof coats alongside heaps of festive cheer! We look forward to welcoming you.
