Maritime Heritage Events Day

Saturday 12 August 2017
10.00 am - 5.00 pm

As the North Norfolk Coast begins to move out of Covid-19 lockdown, and tourism businesses re-open, more planned events are taking place.  These are just listings, so please follow links and check with organisers of events before assuming events are running.

Celebrate our seagoing history and bring old crafts back to life with Rescue Wooden Boats maritime heritage day

A great day celebrating local maritime heritage displays, family activities, and films! Activities include knot tying, crab boat quiz, making things which float, and two film screenings of Rescue Wooden Boats’ film, ’Lucy Lavers Return to Dunkirk 75 years on’. This evocative, hour-long film tells the story of how our newly-restored lifeboat Lucy Lavers made the commemorative journey from Wells-next-the-Sea to Dunkirk and back in May 2015.
Proceeds from the day will kickstart the fundraising for our latest restoration project, Whelker Bessie. An important local boat, Bessie also has her own intriguing Dunkirk history... We look forward to welcoming you!

Price: FREE entry - film screening tickets £7.50 each including one drink

Location: Creake Abbey Barn, Creake Abbey, Creake Road, North Creake, Norfolk, NR21 9LF
