The historic Maids Head has sadly had to close it's doors

It is with a very heavy heart we announce the immediate closure of The Maids Head Hotel, for what potentially is the first time in its 800 year history. We will initially remain closed until the end of April, but we will keep you updated as soon as we have some good news to share. Find out more in our blog post.

Sir John Fenn and the Discovery of the Paston Letters

Friday 22nd November 2019 at 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm

We welcome Professor Rob Knee back to the Hotel in November to commemorate the first written mention of the Maids Head in the Paston Letter of 22nd November 1472.

Sir John Fenn of Dereham tells of the remarkable discovery and eventual publication in 1789 of The Paston Letters – one of the most famous medieval collections in the world. Sir John will explain what the Letters tell us about the Paston family’s connections with Norwich – including the links with the Maids Head Hotel. Join Fenn on a journey into the remarkable world of the Paston Family who played such an important role in Norfolk’s history in the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries.

This is pre-bookable event, tickets only available from Eventbrite . Join us for tea and coffee at 2.00pm, the hour long presentation will commence at 2.30pm, donations to Break, our Charity of the Year.
