Alan Miller, business development manager at the Holkham Estate, said: “At Holkham we are blessed with lots of beautiful outdoor space and so when planning our cautious and phased reopening we knew we wanted to give visitors the very best opportunity to enjoy the outdoors safely at Holkham.

“Feast in the Park was a concept derived from our passion for local food and drink and also our vision to create a setting where people could enjoy delicious food, music, great company and incredible views all whilst socially distanced - the perfect tonic after months of lockdown.

“We’re delighted it is proving popular and look forward to a summer of supporting some of Norfolk and the UK’s many talented producers and welcoming people back to Holkham Park.”

The estate reopened on July 4, with Holkham Hall remaining closed, and they are taking card payments only.

To keep customers safe, there is signage to help with social distancing, hand sanitiser stations and the public toilets now undergo deeper cleaning.
