Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse is delighted to reveal its events programme for the summer holiday period. Perfectly curated to offer events and activities for the whole family to enjoy.

Starting the summer off, Gressenhall will be offering a wide range of additional children's activities throughout the school holiday period. From racing around on pedal tractors to drawing on giant chalkboards; testing agility on an obstacle course to completing themed quizzes and trails, the countdown is on for a summer of fun!

Additionally, each Sunday throughout the holiday period, Gressenhall will be welcoming a demonstrator of local talent or craft to the site, including weaving and spinning, scything and woodturning.


Local theatre group, Strange Fascination, will be offer an evening performance of outdoor theatre of one of the best-loved pirate adventures of young Jim Hawkins and his quest to find buried treasure.

Alternatively, using specialist equipment, visitors will be able to marvel at the sight and sound of the amazing bats that live and feed at Gressenhall. This ‘bat-tastic’ evening is brought to Gressenhall by Norwich Bat Group.


Finishing the summer, Gressenhall will be offering a range of family fun activities at the event ‘Fun for all the Family’. Visitors will be able to channel their inner warrior and enjoy the thrill of axe throwing, meet some feathery friends and enjoy cooking a tasty treat over a campfire.
