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.


Buying and Selling Manuscripts and Early Printed Books

Meet the curators and discover more about the ‘Treasures and Trophies’ exhibition with this special two-part event in Holkham Hall including a rare opportunity to see, first-hand, a selection of important examples from Holkham’s incredible collection of manuscripts. The exhibition curator, and Holkham archivist, Lucy Purvis will take you on a guided tour of the exhibition and reveal insights into the ideas that Thomas Coke explored on his Grand Tour and how they have shaped Holkham. Delve into our unparalleled manuscript and early book collection with our manuscript curator, Dr Laura Nuvoloni. In these specially-devised illustrated talks, Laura will be focusing on the medieval and early modern collections in the Holkham library.
