We look forward to welcoming you to the Walled Garden at Holkham Hall for this year's festival on Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd September. The Festival is open from 10am - 4pm with free entry both days. There is a car parking charge of £3.00.

Now in its eigth year, the festival has grown into a highly successful event with visitors from across the county and beyond. Featuring an ever-growing team of local food and drink producers who grow, rear, produce, supply and sell food in North Norfolk.

The festival takes place in the spectacular setting of the Walled Garden at Holkham Hall. Historically filled with vegetables and flowers grown for the Hall, nestled within huge brick and flint walls that offer protection from the elements, they made for an ideal setting to celebrate the abundance of Norfolk.

Stall holders offer their products for sale including fresh meat and game, vegetables, cakes, artisan beer, bread, tarts, juices, cakes and bakes, chocolates and much more. A dazzling array of concessions offer delicious food for eating on site and entertainment ranges from the ever popular cookery theatre to children’s activities and face painting.

I join my committee in thanking the Earl and Countess of Leicester of Holkham Estate and our sponsors and we hope you will join us this year.
