To help you get in the Christmas spirit here are some amazing things to do near to us at Orchidale for you and your children. If we've forgotten anything please feel free to add to the comments section at the end of this post!

The Global Village Christmas Market at the Forum Norwich!

The Global Village Christmas Market features the finest traders, illustrators and makers selling beautiful gifts from around the world with a focus on fairly-traded and eco-conscious products.

On the Saturday, outside The Forum, you will find Christmas carol singers and brass bands to put you in the festive spirit, as well as delicious global hot food and mulled wine!

Join the choir on Friday 17 December at 7.30pm for this feast of Christmas music both sacred and secular with plenty of audience participation! There will be an interval at this event. Tickets £12-£24 (£5 for Under 18s in side aisles).

My First Panto 2021: Cinderella Rocks @ The Garage, Norwich

Ella dreams of being a world-famous rock star but she must clean and cook for her horrid sisters. Until her dreams become a reality she must make do with her sisters trying to sabotage every show. Her life is turned upside down by her mice who join Ella’s band and help her on her way to play the music at the royal party with just a little bit of magic sparkle.

My First Panto: Cinderella Rocks, based in Norwich, is the only panto in all the land that allows you the audience to get up and join in. You will be rocking out with Ella and her sisters. Dancing along with the mice and helping to make sure Ella gets her happy ever after.

Pensthorpe Christmas Market!

On Sunday 28th November, this popular Christmas Market returns! Attended by the region’s best food and drink suppliers, artists and craft makers, the Christmas Market provides shoppers with a welcome change of scenery from the high street, with pop-up stalls, all in a relaxed and spacious outdoor environment. Escape the city crowds and discover bespoke creations, creative gift ideas and delicious treats made from boutique producers, many of whom are from the local area.Parking is FREE and there is also a very special park admission price for the day! (Same for adults and children!) The Christmas Market is held in our courtyard area so you do not need to pay to visit the market.

Tunnel of Light in Norwich City Centre!

Get ready to feel festive! This Christmas, Norwich is the place to be, with a host of beautiful and seasonal installations. The ever popular Tunnel of Light makes a welcome return, with over 57,000 LED lights! It has lit up the streets of Norwich for several years – with more gorgeous patterns to enjoy this year than ever before. The city centre will also be decked with Christmas lights, creating a stunning display. Plus, there will be breathtaking projections on Norwich Castle.

Thursford’s Enchanted Journey Of Light!

When twilight falls the magic begins! Your journey will progress into the Santa’s Magical Journey Building (sadly Santa is STILL ICE-olating so will not be attending the event). You will travel past the penguins and polar bears to the giant-sized teddy bears! Get ready to see how the elves have loaded Santa’s sleigh, then past the busy elves hard at work in the toy factory using the wondrous wrapping machine!

Throughout your journey you’ll meet lots of fantasy land characters including the snowman family, make sure you watch out for their snowballs! Your journey continues as you venture outside to the Lantern Light Extravaganza, bigger and better for 2021 and with lots of new creatures for you to marvel at: a beautiful, breath-taking festival of luminous sculptures, from a fantasy underwater world to the wilds of the North Pole. Watch out for the naughty mushroom gnomes!

Festive Fair at The Forum!

This year the Festive Fair at The Forum in Norwich is back with a bang and packed full of Christmas cheer.

Enjoy a glass of local beer or cup of warming mulled wine while listening to Christmas carols from Norfolk’s own Pavilion Brass Quintet on the Thursday and Friday and return at the weekend for festive tunes from a traditional fairground organ. Plus, there’ll be all sorts of food and drink stands outside, from waffles and gourmet doughnuts to freshly roasted almond pralines.

Inside there will be East Anglian stalls galore selling everything from jewellery, pottery, plants, textiles, woodcraft, glassware, clothes, tins, art, preserves, Christmas decorations and much more.

Plus, in the spirit of Christmas, this event will also be raising funds for Norwich-based breast cancer reconstruction charity, Keeping Abreast.

Families from across East Anglia are set to experience a magical and truly roarr-some festive wonderland at Norfolk attraction, Roarr!
