Cromer Carnival - Sat 13 August - Friday 19th August 2016
With the temperatures climbing, the sun getting brighter by the hour and Norfolk getting busier we’ve drawn up our top must experience events this August (and beyond). The events kick-off on Saturday the 13th of August, when the famous Cromer Carnival is set to begin. Last year saw the return of Cromer’s famous beach hut competition, but who knows what surprises could be in store for us this year.
Richardson’s Tour de Broads - Gates open at 8am on Sunday the 21st August, so be ready for a spectacular day of racing!
The following weekend sees the launch of two events, so you’re spoilt for choice! Firstly there’s the Richardson’s Tour de Broads, which, just like its european sister is a cycle race, however Norfolk's version involves a strategically planned route around our beautiful broads. This year Woodforde’s brewery have proudly created a special brew for this event, that cannot be missed, and all competitors will be receiving a free pint!
Hunstanton Kite Festival - 21st August
Alternatively, fancy a trip down to Hunstanton, as this year’s Kite Festival with dramatic performances and stunning aerial maneuvers, this really is one of Norfolk’s summer months’ best events! Oh and don’t forget about the classic car rally that happens around Hunstanton at the same time.
Sundown Music Festival - 2nd-4th Sept
As the summer months begin to draw to a close, Norfolk has one last trick up its sleeve, Sundown music festival! This year an excess of 48 bands and artists will be performing, featuring acts such as, Dizzee Rascal, Fleur East, Jason Derulo, Jess Glynne, Mark Radford and Sigala, to name but a few. There really is something for everyone, and with music being played all weekend, you have plenty of time to enjoy everything else that Norfolk has to offer. Get your tickets now!
