              The Pantaloons open air theatre presents Sense and Sensibility

                FRIENDS OF HOW HILL EVENT

                Elinor Dashwood has a lot of good Sense. Her sister Marianne Dashwood has an excess of Sensibility. Together they make a snappy title for Jane Austen’s classic novel of scandals, scoundrels and severely sprained ankles. This funny, fast-paced and faithful new adaptation from the critically-acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company features live music, audience interaction, romance and heartbreak.
                To book contact Jeanne Flett 01692 678560 or www.thepantaloons.co.uk
                Bring a picnic and something to sit on.

                  How To Sail A Wherry

                    Wherries were once a common sight on the Broads, but now only eight of these iconic boats remain. This enjoyable and relaxing holiday offers an opportunity to sail the pleasure wherry Hathor. After practical demonstrations and training, you can help raise and lower the sail and mast, assist with mooring and quanting and, of course, take the helm. Or if that sounds too energetic you can always let the crew take care of the hard work while you enjoy the view with tea and cake. The price includes full board accommodation, all sailings and illustrated evening talks.

                    £425 per person


                    Heritage Open Day

                      Booking essential.

                      Free of charge
