The fair is free and will be open from 10.30am until 4pm with a variety of different activities taking place on each day.

David Pope, West Norfolk Council cabinet member said: 'The theme of this year's English Tourism Week is 'places to visit on your doorstep'. West Norfolk has a wealth of beautiful places and interesting attractions to visit, so this is the ideal opportunity to remind people about them and promote all the activities that are planned throughout the area during 2012.
