Celebrate Norfolk Day

Celebrating Norfolk Day at the Maids Head

Join us for this special talk to celebrate Norfolk Day !

Dr Rob Knee, in the guise of Sir Robert Hunter, will relate the remarkable life of Octavia Hill.

In 1895, Octavia Hill co-founded the National Trust with Sir Robert and Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley..

Octavia was born in Wisbech and became a leading campaigner on social issues, many relating to improving the environment for the disadvantaged and to provide access for all to beautiful places.

In 1912, Blakeney Point became one of the National Trusts first ever acquisitions.

Tea & coffee included. 

This is a free event to celebrate Norfolk Day, any donations on the day to our Charity of the Year Priscilla Bacon Hospice, would be gratefully received.

Please note this event is only bookable through Eventbrite  

Following the talk, continue to celebrate Norfolk Day by enjoying either lunch or afternoon tea in our pretty courtyard, or by having a drink in our Jacobean Bar. Tables can be booked by calling 01603 272010 or online.
