From Norfolk Day flags and bunting to locally made produce and clothing, people are gearing up for the big day on July 27.

Since the announcement of the annual event, the Norfolk Store has gone from strength to strength. It now features a variety of products including merchandise and items from lockdown start-ups.

Annabel and Cameron, the owners of Pascoe Candles, handcraft a line of luxury, vegan-friendly, and eco-conscious candles and wax melts from their home on the Norfolk coast. They launched their business in May 2020.

"We've always aimed to keep Norfolk at the heart of our brand as the beautiful scenery and nature is what inspired us to create as eco-friendly candles as possible," Annabel said. 

"Norfolk Day is a fantastic way for our community to come together and celebrate everything amazing about our county, its incredible history, and the people that call it home."

Designer Ellie Daniels, of Eleanora Tiatora, sells items with Norfolk dialect on them, such as mugs, coasters, and tea towels.
