As the festive season fast approaches a host of events are set to take place across north Norfolk, from meeting Santa to musical evenings and Christmas shopping with a difference.

Felbrigg Hall will be taking a step back time over the weekend of Friday, December 11 - Sunday, December 13 when the 1940s post-war era is brought to life with decorations, displays, costumed staff and musical entertainment.

The hall will be open from 11am - 2.30pm for the event which will be followed by Christmas carols in the courtyard from 3pm.

At Sheringham Park on December 5 and 6 from 11am – 3pm there will be a Christmas trail and craft seasonal trail leading to the learning centre where materials will be provided to make a wreath, Yule log or a miniature rhododendron Christmas tree to take away.

And for those wanting to get away from the Christmas theme, there is always the chance to go seal spotting throughout December at Blakeney National Nature Reserve.

Blakeney Point is a perfect breeding site for grey seals and in 2014 Blakeney Point became the largest seal colony in England with 2,426 pups born.

Santa will be on the junior farm at Wroxham Barns where children can join in with story-telling, face painting and a reindeer hunt in the Christmas activity barns and have a photo taken with Santa and his elves, from December 5 - 20 at timed intervals, 11am, 1pm and 2.30pm.
