Archant 2016

The event has grown in popularity since being launched in 2012 - named partly after the well-known Hare family, partly after the iconic hares which inhabit the chalky downs around the village.

St Mary’s Church in the village will be filled with craft stalls ranging from metalwork and jewellery to ceramics, fabrics, woodwork and glassware.

Acclaimed Norfolk wildlife photographer and film-maker Martin Hayward Smith will also be signing copies of his book My Year with Hares and selling cards and prints of his work.

The event runs from 10am - 4pm on Saturday. Admission is free. At 11.30am there will be a concert by the joint school choir of the Saint Mary Federation of schools.
