Celebrating Norfolk Day with Paston Footprints

Edmund Paston (Dr Rob Knee)

We joined forces with the Paston Footprints project to celebrate Norfolk Day at the hotel today with Edmund Paston’s Tombland Tales. Dr Rob Knee, dressed as Edmund Paston, gave a very entertaining talk about the Pastons, using excerpts from the letters, which brought to life the family’s ups and downs in 15th century Norwich and Norfolk.

The Maids Head has a special link with the Paston Letters, as a letter dated 22 November 1472 features the first written mention of the Maids Head, confirming the name change of the inn from the Murtel Fish.

To celebrate this anniversary, the hotel and Paston Footprints are staging an evening with John Paston, Head of Household on 22 November 2018. The event at the Maids Head will feature a three-course dinner, poetry readings and music. Tickets are £35. For more information t. 01603 272007.
