Itteringham May Day Fayre is always a great event to get to. The car boot sale and stalls usually offer an unusual array of products and bric-a-brac.
There’s plenty of bargains to be had. The plant stalls are particularly popular, as is the home-made cake stall. The fayre doesn’t officially start until 11am and the cake stall adheres to this strictly!
This is a great day out and a chance to sample a truly English village fayre. There’s usually a bouncy castle and other fun and games for children. The Village Hall offers tea, coffee, sandwiches, rolls and an enticing range of cakes and scones. There’s always a big queue but it’s worth it.
The weather makes a big difference as ever. This year was sunny but there was a chill wind in the air. But, at least it wasn’t a washout as it has been in other years. With over one month without rain, I think a lot of us were secretly hoping it would rain.
Just down the road is the Walpole Arms restaurant and pub. But if you’re hoping to eat, it’s often a good idea to book in advance.
Around this time of year, the bluebells in the Blickling Park woods are often in full bloom. This is just a 5 minute drive away.
