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.

When a farmer near Snettisham cast aside what he thought was an old brass bedstead, little did he know it was the beginning of one of the greatest iron age treasure discoveries in Europe.

Over the next 40 odd years 200 ancient torcs, elaborate neck ornaments, many made of gold, would be found on the site at Ken Hill.

Combine this with the story of Queen Boudica, as written by the Roman Cassius Dio, who described the rebellious Queen as wearing a golden torc around her neck and you have the foundation for one of the great moments in British history.

This is the story that several storytellers have woven together to create a dramatic re-imagining of how the legendary Queen summoned the might of many divided clans to challenge the power of Imperial Rome.
