Christmas is close enough you can touch it. The trees are up, houses have been decorated and Norfolk’s streets are looking as festive as ever. However different things are this year, our love for Christmas and all of the joyful aspects that come with it are still there to be seen (albeit from a safe distance of 2 metres!).
We may not be able to have a household full to the brim with people this year, but there are still plenty of things going on in Norfolk for families and friends to enjoy across the county! Many of these events continue well into January so there’s still plenty of time for everyone to enjoy them!
Grab the kids and catch a ride of The Norfolk Lights Express! Returning after popular demand, passengers will experience a wonderful countryside trip between Sheringham and Holt! Experience riding on a classic steam train which you may assume Santa has decorate himself! Guests can expect a fabulous light show, mulled wine (or Hot Chocolate for the little’uns) and a Christmas ride like no other!
The Norfolk Lights Express will be running up until the 3rd of January 2021.
If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, then make sure to add Thursford into your Satnav. The small village in North Norfolk is offering an indoor wonderland trail as part of their Enchanted Journey of Light display. Receiving rave reviews, the Enchanted Journey of Light promises an immersive festive experience which will be sure to dazzle and impress. A great way to get the children excited for Christmas!
You can’t beat the theatre at Christmas! Although the usual annual pantomime is not able to go ahead this year, Norwich Theatre Royal is putting on a special festive programme. This include three different shows including Panto in a Pickle!, A Circus Carol and She Does it Under the Christmas Tree! Audiences will be socially distanced with shows running between an hour and 90 minutes.
