North Norfolk Events & Whats On | August 2020


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.


Here are loads of excuses for visiting the beautiful North Norfolk Coast throughout the year.  We list both our own events and what's on around the North Norfolk Coast and inland.  The listings here include festivals, courses, concerts, guided walks, quizzes, activity breaks and festive celebrations - All great reasons for staying at Deepdale Backpackers & Camping.
