Teeth are brushed, pyjamas are on and stories read. I’ve just finished tucking a very happy and rather excitable child into bed after our wondrous trip to Norwich Theatre Royal to watch A Circus Carol.
A Circus Carol is part of A Right Royal Christmas running a Norwich Theatre Royal from 16th December to 24th December and it is so good to see the Theatre back up and running, especially with such a great programme.
Last week we headed off to Silverstone to check out their most fabulous Christmas event, LAPland. It was brilliant. The lights, the atmosphere, the set up. Just getting to have be on such an iconic track in our car was amazing. It’s definitely worth a visit.
Last week I left work a few minutes early so I could get home and fill the car with snacks, blankets and a small picnic dinner. I picked L up from school and as soon as we got back home, Christmas jumpers were donned and we got straight into the car and started our journey to Silverstone, we were on the road by 3.30pm which I thought was quite an impressive turnaround!
Castle Quarter and Get Me Out The Four Walls to host virtual Halloween Spooktacular
Castle Quarter has joined forces with Norfolk charity Get Me Out The Four Walls to create a virtual Halloween Spooktacular. The online event takes place from 11am on Saturday 31st October and is open to all.
Virtual party goers will be in for a fun-filled day, including: a Halloween quiz, fancy dress catwalk, musical bumps and lots more.
After writing about some grown up Halloween experiences last week, it got me thinking about much fun it really would be to get away and do something different this year. That being said, I still the love the idea of having some flexibility around when you actually travel and not having to commit to dates unless you are ready to, so I’ve come up with some more options but this time from the fabulous Red Letter Days.
Now Halloween is one of my favourite holidays of the year, it’s fun, involves sweets and pumpkin spice and is one of the most Autumnal things going when you think about pumpkin patches. I feel that often all the focus is on the children, but what about the grownups like me who love to celebrate? Don’t forget me!
We spent a very happy and hot day at Roarr! with a very happy and hot child this week. During lockdown I had asked L to write down anything that he wanted to do once we were able and visiting the dinosaurs was on that list, so when we were gifted tickets to visit I couldn’t wait to tell him.
One of Norfolk’s leading family attractions, Amazona Zoo in Cromer is delighted to announce a number of recent births during lockdown including Patagonian Hare young, a Common Marmoset and Striated Caracaras chicks.
Head Keeper, Imogen White said: “Lock down has been a very interesting and busy time, not only for us but for our birds and mammals! We have had much to celebrate despite the anguish of not being able to open while we were in lockdown.”
Earlier in the year we were lucky enough to be guests at Diggerland Kent. We had a fabulous time but then lockdown happened and it just didn’t feel like the right time to be writing about this great day out we had enjoyed, that now, no one else could. With the easing of restrictions it’s great to see that Diggerland is back and ready for visitors so here is a little bit about our experience.
