Our guide to what’s on in Norfolk this weekend

Need something to do this weekend? Here are just some of the events going on around Norfolk this weekend.

To carry on with the theme of Hallowe'en from last week's release of Hotel Transylvania, Tim Burton's Frankenweenie (PG) is out this weekend.

As usual for Burton the story touches on a dark subject. Victor is an outcast with his dog as his only friend. However, when Sparky dies Victor cannot bear the loss of his beloved pet, so in the middle of the night he digs Sparky up and resurrects him with the help of a machine that harnesses lightening.

Both adults and children will love this animation as it is entertaining throughout with its 3D stop-motion and great vocal acting, however telling your children not to try this at home may be advisable.

To celebrate the country's wild open spaces, the Cley Visitors Centre is holding an art exhibition in aid of Norfolk Wildlife Trust's Cley appeal. It features work that shows off the most beautiful areas of our country, from a number of different artists including David Ord Kerr and Robert Gillmor.

All the money raised will go towards buying more land to expand the Cley Marshes reserve, and if looking at all this art work tires you out there is always a slice or two of cake available in the cafe. The exhibition is open 10am till 5pm daily, from October 20 to November 2 at the Cley Visitor Centre.

If you think opera is a bit dull then think again because the Diss Corn Hall's A Night at the Opera is being billed as 'opera without the boring bits.' Singers from the Merry Opera Company will be performing their favourite songs from the stage, including both opera and musical theatre, making it an event for all. Tickets cost �10 from www.disscornhall.co.uk
