Fortune telling, archery, ancient craft demonstrations and falconry will be some of the attractions at a spring fair this weekend.

The event, on the historic Blickling Estate, will happen between Saturday May 24-Monday May 26 from 10.15am-4.30pm.

As well as the ancient traditions, modern crafts will also be on show and for sale from pewter and jewellery making to locally produced beer and cider.

Entertainment will be provided by Holt Ridge Morris Dancers and the Fools Puppet Theatre Companie.

Following on from the success of the RAF Day last year, Ian Pycroft and his team at Black Knight Historical re-enactment group will be bringing history to life by exploring the stories of the village fair.

Families will also be able to enjoy modern day treasure at the fair when a geocache trail will be launched.

Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices, such as mobile phones, to find a container and object in a hidden location using co-ordinates.
