FESTIVAL BAR                                                                                                                             

Our friendly and expertly managed Festival Bar will be available each evening from 5pm and during the interval of the evening concerts.  A selection of wines, available by the glass or bottle, has been carefully selected by the NNMF Directors!  Locally brewed beers from The Real Ale Shop at Holkham and a range of soft drinks will also be available.                                          


BRING YOUR OWN PICNIC                                                                                                          

The audience may picnic in the church yard by kind permission of the Vicar and the churchwardens.  You may bring your own wine but you can also buy wines from our Festival Bar – this helps toward the costs of hiring the marquee every year!                                                                 



Toilets are provided in the churchyard by NNMF.                               


CAR PARKING                                                                                                                              

On-road parking near the church is strictly limited so we provide a large car park next to the church thanks to an agreement with the friendly farmer, Ben Sexton. There is limited parking for disabled members of the 

audience (please do book your space with us in advance) who can access the church via the Chancel entrance.                                                                                                                                  

Volunteers from the church will be on hand to provide assistance.                 


SEATING AT THE CONCERTS                                                                                                         

Seating is unreserved (Concert Supporters have allocated seats) and cushions are available to hire from the church on arrival at £1 per cushion. This raises funds for St Mary’s and is additional income to the donation made by NNMF, which in 2023 amounted to £3,300.   



Programmes to all the concerts are provided free thanks to a donation from a long-standing Friend of the Festival.                                                     .
