Programme - Deepdale Hygge

Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th March 2018


This is the provisional programme for Deepdale Hygge 2018.  We are still working on some elements of the programme, so please check back for updates and additions.

Friday

You are welcome anytime on Friday* and the Deepdale Spring Market will be on all day next door at Dalegate Market.

In the evening, we have two great sets of live music.  We start with the new album launch by Marina Florance, and we are immensely honoured that Marina has chosen Deepdale as the venue to launch what will no doubt be another fantastic album.

Then we hope you'll put on your dancing shoes and enjoy a Ceilidh (Barn Dance) with Live Music from Compass Moon.  Both these gigs will be in the Brick Barn at Deepdale Backpackers & Camping.

Saturday

Activities begin at 10am, so plenty of time to sort your breakfast.  Those in the backpackers hostel have use of the kitchen, there's Deepdale Cafe next door which serves excellent breakfast, and Deepdale Stores has a good range of fresh bread, cereals and other breakfast items.

Activity Morning - Walk, Cycle, Run or just Relax - Starting at 10am (or anytime if relaxing)

 - Guided Walk - The Deepdale Crew will be leading a Guided Circular Walk of about 7km, heading up to Barrow Common, and then down to the old Roman site in Brancaster before returning along the Norfolk Coast Footpath.  Suitable for anyone who can cope with a 7km walk, and families are most welcome.

 - Guided Cycle - The Deepdale Crew will be leading a Guided Cycle ride, which will be more suited for adults.  Last year the cyclists headed to Holkham, the 2018 destination hasn't yet been decided.  Bring your own bike or borrow a bike from Deepdale Bike Hire (limited numbers available and must be arranged on Friday afternoon)

 - Guided Run - Our lovely friend Ruth Hedge - Personal Trainer will be leading our very own a Guided Run around the farm, so regular Park Runners won't miss out on their Saturday morning run - 5km or 10km (2 laps)

 - Guided Nordic Walk - Rebecca from Norfolk Nordic Walking will be joining the Guided Walk, so Nordic Walkers are most welcome to join in too.  Rebecca has a few poles you can borrow, but you are welcome to bring your own.

 - Taster Stand Up Paddle Boarding - Steve from North Norfolk Paddle Boards will be offering taster paddle boarding sessions on the salt marshes opposite Deepdale.  The tide should allow tasters from about 9am to 12noon.  Buoyancy aids will be provided, but you'll need your own kit, we suggest a wetsuit in case you fall in (you will fall in) and shoes you are happy to get wet.
