An online community is staging a weekend festival.

It has already witnessed lots of new friendships, business collaborations and sales all inside this wonderfully supportive community.

Inspired by the county and its abundance of talent, Tribe Norfolk Weekend will be a showcase of local producers, makers, artists, foodies, businesses, musicians and wellness practioners.

It is being hosted at Happy Valley, a nine-acre campsite and woodland reserve at Grimston, near King's Lynn, over the weekend of September 22 - 23.
