A host of entertainment for all ages will be on offer at the annual Mannington Hall Charity Day.
The theme for the event on September 4, hosted this year by the Norfolk Knitters and Stitchers group, is a ‘Step Back in Time’.
Mannington Hall itself will be open with displays of items from yesteryear, including a Gansey display from Sheringham Museum, showing many different jerseys worn by fishermen in the past.
In the grounds there will be craft and charity stalls as well as activities for adults and children. Norfolk Knitters and Stitchers will have plenty of stalls with a range handmade items for sale.
Linda Brown, Organiser of Norfolk Knitters and Stitchers, said: “Attractions include classic cars, Simon’s hawks and owls, Minidonks, spinners and weavers from Worstead Weavers, and an exhibition from North Norfolk Railway.
“There’ll be music from folk band Stookey Blue, a ukulele band and Fiddlesticks Morris Dancers.
“The children will not miss out – there’ll be a teddy trail where you can find out about all sorts of bears and get a special knitted Mannington teddy if you take part as well as a wonderful teddy bears picnic led by Karyn who will take you all on a bear hunt. The Puppet Theatre will also be bringing along a workshop for the children to enjoy.”
There will be a wide range of refreshments for visitors to enjoy and an ice cream van will be on site. 
Prizes for the event’s competitions will be presented by authors Isabelle King for the children and David Viner for the adults and they will also be signing their books for anyone interested.
Linda added: “This is going to be a fabulous day out so put it in your diaries now to make sure you don’t miss it.”
