We will be at the Gressenhall Spring Fair on Easter Monday 1 April for some fun, foolery and beer.
Find us in the chapel between 10am and 5pm sampling and selling our bottled ales and lagers, along with fellow local brewer Poppyland. A klezmer band will also be joining us for some lively performances at 12.30 and 2pm.
To celebrate Norfolk ale, Gressenhall farm horses will be sowing a Victorian variety of barley supplied by the John Innes Centre. They plan then to harvest later in the year and send for malting to create a special ‘Gressenhall Beer’ in 2014.
There’s lots of other family fun entertainment too – play the clown and practice your circus skills with Foolhardy Circus Arts. Conquer the inflatable obstacle course and watch as Mr Punch is punished. Get crafty and make a colourful jester’s hat to show off in the Grand Gressenhall Parade.
Explore the farm, see different breeds of heavy horses and watch them working in the fields.
Plus! Colourful performances from the Ouse Washes Molly Dancers and the Dragon Hall Mummers, live music from Klezmerized and stalls selling beer from local breweries, produce, crafts and plants.
Ticket prices, standard museum admission: Adults: £9.30, Concessions: £8.30, Young People (4-16): £6.30
