Cromer’s North Norfolk Information Centre celebrates English Tourism Week

The North Norfolk Information Centre (NNIC) based in Cromer will be celebrating English Tourism Week with talks, activities and demonstrations taking place from Saturday.

The event will see nine days of book signings and readings by local authors, talks on local history, coast, countryside and local attractions, demonstrations of local arts and crafts and even the launch of new products from 'gone crabbing'.

Run by North Norfolk District Council, the NNIC will be celebrating the event every morning and afternoon and everyone is invited along free of charge.

Councillor Tom FitzPatrick said: 'North Norfolk District Council provides a significant amount of support for tourism as it is such an important element of the North Norfolk economy. This is one of the most beautiful places in England, and deservedly one of the country's most popular holiday destinations. The signs so far are that this could be an excellent summer for tourism and we hope that lots of people will visit the NNIC during English Tourism Week to get just a flavour of the wide range of attractions and activities that are available here for everyone to enjoy.'
