“From its wide skies to vast, sandy, windswept beaches, Norfolk bequeaths you that most valuable and elusive thing in our crushed, hectic modern lives: a sense of space.”

Walsingham Picture Palace, Tuesday 20th March HAMPSTEAD

Our next film, is on Tuesday 20th March, Hampstead, 12A

In which an American widow (Diane Keaton) finds unexpected love with a man (Brendan Gleeson) living rough on Hampstead Heath, when they take on the developers who want to destroy his home.
“Hampstead is a charming and funny life-affirming tale about how love can be found in the most unexpected places and proves once and for all that age is no barrier to second chances.” Rotten Tomatoes.
“…a fine cast in a quirky and charming piece of cinematic soufflé with Keaton and Gleeson in sparkling form. It’s fun.” RTÉ

Walsingham Snowdrop Walks Charity Day Saturday 17th February

The snowdrop season for 2018 has now ended, but spring is definitely there to enjoy in the Abbey Grounds, which remain open daily, with entry at the Shirehall Museum.

We were delighted that the Charity Snowdrop Walk on Saturday 17th February in aid of Wells Community Hospital was such a great success.

Thanks to beautiful sunny weather, it was a really great fundraising day. Adding together the admissions, income from refreshments provided by the hospital’s team of volunteers at the Parish Hall, donations from Creake Plant Centre (selling plants at the Parish Hall) and from the Walsingham Farms Shop pop-up café in the Abbey Grounds, the total came to a magnificent £5,284.58.

Huge thanks to everyone who contributed.
