We invite you to visit one of the prettiest villages in Norfolk this Father’s Day and take a stroll around the gardens of Heydon Hall, The Grange, The Old Cottage, The Old Rectory, Poppyland, and more. There will also be entertainment courtesy of Holt Ridge Morris dancers as well as craft, plant and book stalls plus refreshments on the village green. Three’s Company will also be performing summertime songs in St Peter & St Paul church from 3:30 pm until 4:30 pm.
All proceeds from this event will be donated to St Peter & St Paul church in Heydon and the Norfolk charity Nelson's Journey.
Heydon is one of less than a dozen privately owned villages in Great Britain and became Norfolk’s first conservation area in 1971. Heydon is also currently home to six County Wildlife Sites, has won Best Kept Village on two occasions, and has been the setting of numerous film and TV productions.
Surrounding the village green you will find the Earle Arms pub, Heydon Village Tea Shop, Husk artisan bakery, and St Peter & St Paul church.
