24-28 February 2015
It was thanks to Dr. Al Cormack and his colleagues at Gresham's School, Holt, that what started as a tentative idea for 2016 will be a reality as early as February 2015! Each February since 2011 Gresham's have run a festival, which in the past couple of years has focused on nature. At the October meeting Al offered to open the programme to the group, and within a few days each organisation had come up with an event they will present in this, the first Norfolk Festival of Nature. Click on the Festival logo or visit the NATURAL LIGHT What's On page for full details.
educational activities include a haiku competition and a nature writing workshop
Educational activities will include a schools' haiku competition sponsored by Festival partner Bray's Cottage and a nature writing workshop in the woodland environment of Gresham's.
Later in 2015 the Festival partners hope to present further activities throughout the county, so keep in touch for regular updates.
The Norfolk Festival of Nature is in association with Bray’s Cottage, Gresham’s School, Mark Cocker, Hawk and Owl Trust, The National Trust, Norfolk Wildlife Trust, Norwich Castle Museum, Rialto Magazine, The RSPB, Wild Anglia and Writers’ Centre Norwich.
