Advent Calendar

New for 2023, the NorfolkPlaces Advent Calendar is here!

Running from the 1st to the 24th of December, behind each window (or door, not going to debate as we use both references), you’ll discover links to recommended seasonal content, business listing bonuses, some external suggestions and perhaps the odd surprise.

Sorry, there are no chocolates , but feel free to delve in to the Celebrations tub (other confectionery is available) for every door you open.

Come back every day, from the 1st to the 24th, to see what’s behind the door. Okay, you can click on them before, but you won’t see much.

Miss a day?

Don’t worry – you can still open previous days, and our calendar will be up until the early January, at which point we’ll clear it so it is ready for next year.
