This November Norwich goes low key as it gears up for the return of some wonderful big events in December.
It’s all about the shopping this month with the Little Vintage Lover Fair hitting Sussex Barns on the 14th and St Andrews Hall playing host to vintage fairs and fleamarkets. If you want to top up your wardrobe for free then pop along to Caistor Hall tonight for a Swishing Party.
There’s a few big band evenings too, for a nice relaxing post Halloween, pre Christmas treat. If you’re still up for a bit of hectic the ACHTUNG! Caberet is back with a B Movie theme.
As ever the Events page will be updated throughout the month with any other interesting events that come to my attention and it’s now in a calendar format, making it easier to see what’s on! You can also sign up to the Events Mailing List. This means you’ll receive a monthly email of all the exciting vintage diary dates in the Norwich and Norfolk area, plus I’ll be able to let you know if anything amazing gets added last minute!
If there’s anything you think I missed, or you’re running an event you think would be of interest then drop me a line or leave a comment and let me know.
