Re: Norfolk Living History Fayre at Mannington Hall - 16th/17th October

Interesting. I have a business trip in Innsbruck Austria that ends that weekend and could conceiveably fly back to the states through London rather then Frankfurt.Â My travel maps put North Norfolk as 3 hours by car but 7 hours by train from Heathrow. Would you consider this an accurate estimation? Is there a good way to get from the Norfolk Train Station to the faire site or does this require a taxi? (not really certain I want to drive on the wrong side of the road anyway)
I'd love to see how Fairs are run in the UK and the opportunity to watch Dr. Capwell and Mr Sewell joust is not to be missed.

This is a warm invitation to everyone!
It's that time of year again and with The 4th Norfolk Living History Fayre just around the corner (16th and 17th October) I would like to offer you the opportunity to attend this wonderful event at Mannington Hall and Gardens. The Hall is a stunning 15th century moated manor house in north Norfolk (NR11 7BB).
This year we have a number of new attractions which we think will entice even more people to visit.
- JOUSTING with two of the world's best, Dr Tobias Capwell and Dominic Sewell.
- Viking longboat.
- Radio Norfolk live broadcast from the event with listeners having the chance to bring their own historical 'mystery' objects to be discussed.
- Music through the ages, including Medieval, Victorian and 1940s.
- Traditional 'St. George & the Dragon' Puppet Show.
- Plus many of the popular acts that performed last year including 1940's girl guides and WVS canteen, combat and black powder displays, falconry, firebreathers, vintage cars, military vehicles, 2000 years of living history displays, storytelling and craft demonstrations.
For those attending the show the Trollsbottom beer tent will stay open during the Saturday evening with now legendary entertainments.
There will also be a souvenir programme/show guide for sale to the public which will feature articles, show information and advertising. Should your group or society be interested in advertising (for events and new members) then please contact for more details.
For those attending we offer both plastic and authentic camping space. All those in historical costume are welcome (registration needed), either for just the day or whole event. You can find out more information and photos of previous events on
