Worstead Festival 2021
Update from Trustees, 19th March 2021
It is with great sadness that the Trustees have made the decision to cancel the Worstead Festival due to take place 24th & 25th July 2021.
This last year has been extremely difficult for us all and we all really wanted the festival to happen.
Following the government’s current guidance, it is unlikely that a decision to proceed will made before 21st June at the earliest. This would give insufficient time to complete arrangements to safely deliver the festival.
The aim of the festival has always been to help local charities. With that in mind, the trustees have decided to allocate some of the costs budgeted to organise this year’s festival towards grants for our local good causes.
Chair, The Worstead Village Festival
Back to normal in 2022!
Worstead Festival 2022 will be a packed weekend of entertainment for all the family!
Worstead Festival is a celebration of rural life, farming, and the crafts, produce and heritage of Worstead and North Norfolk. The festival was founded in 1965 to raise money to save the village church which was falling into disrepair. The festival is still run entirely by volunteers, and all profits raised are donated to local charitable causes through the Worstead Village Festival Charity grant fund.
Alongside stalls, street food, music and bars, the festival showcases farming and rural attractions, lots of fun activities for children, craft stalls, chef demos, main arena displays, vintage farming and military vehicles, and lots lots more.
Friday – Road Run & Barbecue – 7pm to 9pm
