Movies: Catch a final half-term scare at the Halloween Movie Nights at Creake Abbey. The setting is perfectly spooky, 6pm on Friday and 4pm on Saturday. On Monday Rupert Everett’s (writer, director and star) ‘Unhappy Prince’ is playing at the Princess Theatre Hunstanton: ‘a deeply felt, tremendously acted tribute to courage’ as the Guardian puts it perfectly.
Theatre: The Flying Bridge Theatre Company bring ‘Not About Heroes’ to the Dereham Memorial Hall on Sat 27 Oct. The production, originating with Theatr Clywd in Wales, has won several national awards. It tells the story of the meeting and friendship between Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, formed in the Craiglockhart Hospital in Edinburgh where both war poets were being treated for ‘shellshock’.
Halls and Gardens: It’s October, perhaps not the height of the garden tour season, but then Desmond McCarthy does things different, or Normal for Norfolk. He’ll give you an amusing tour of Wiveton Hall’s eyebrows (sorry! We mean hedges) on Tue 30 Oct, 11am. The truly normal (what are we trying to say here?) Holkham Hall has a behind the scenes tour next day.
Races: Finally, it’s Fakenham Races on Wed 31 Oct. Get you over there for a bracing day at what we think is one of the best ‘local’ courses in the country.
