We are really looking forward to going back to the gorgeous Back to the Garden for North Norfolk Arts and Crafts wonderful Summer event. We were there last year and had a wonderful time. North Norfolk arts and crafts is a wonderful group full of Norfolk designer makers, supporting local artists and makers. From ceramics to textiles, fine silver jewellery to exquisite wood turning and homewares, the North Norfolk Arts and crafts Fair is definitely one not to miss.
