Fakenham Fair 2016

fakenham-fair-2016-finalSaturday 27th August from 2pm to 6pm in Fakenham Town Centre. Street entertainers, music, food, charity stalls and fairground rides.

Fakenham Fair organisers Kick Start Fakenham have listened to many view points over the last few years and has decided to move this year’s event into the town centre. It’s hoped that by making this move traders will want to be a part of this event and really become involved to ensure that the town is absolutely brought alive on the day.

This year the event will have a circus theme and once again adds a mini food festival to the mix. Stalls will line up along the street in the town centre and entertainers will feature around the town. Your comperes for the day are the guys from North Norfolk Radio.

Please note that Fakenham farmers’ Market will run from 8am to 12 noon and a road closure will be in place all day in the town centre. See our parking page for a guide to where to leave your car.

New Tourist Information Centre for Fakenham

sweetsnthingsFakenham now has a second Tourist Information point, this one open all year round. A dedicated hub for all things Fakenham has been created in the new Sweets ‘n’ Things premises in the Market Place (next to Nationwide). A wealth of information booklets are available as well as booking forms for many local community events.

The new TIC is a joint project by Sweets N Things’ proprietor Lisa Mallett, Active Fakenham’s Richard Crook and with support from Fakenham Area Partnership which organises the existing information pont at Fakenham Library. Volunteers will manage the area, with assistance from shop staff. New signage incorporating an attractive logo will be incorporated at the premises.

In association with the launch of the new information hub, the website has been redesigned to reflect the new logo and signage. Future ‘’ Town Guides, produced by Fabcom, will also take on the new look to present a consistent image for the town’s information.
