Blickling Estate's Summer of Sport

Children take part in a wheelbarrow race in the garden.

This summer we have an exciting programme of fun and games across the estate for all the family to enjoy. Keep fit with a wide variety of activities from cycling and skipping to meditation and hockey...

13 July - 8 September

Olympic Saturdays | Inspire to be one of the greats at archery, badminton, football or volleyball, the choice is yours.

Sports Day Sundays | We'll be going back to traditional sports every Sunday, whether you're five or fifty five, come and have a go at the egg and spoon, sack, wheelbarrow or three-legged races.

Magical Mondays | We’re very excited to be joined by a variety of external sportsmen each Monday:

5 August, Hockey Join North Norfolk Hockey Club in the four acre field for some hockey fun or if you fancy something a little smaller, we’ll have all the equipment available on the parade for you to play with.

Sport Box Tuesdays | Pick up something from the sports box which is filled with a whole range of activities and have fun with the whole family. Why not bring a picnic and make a day of it?

Sports Day Wednesdays | We’ll be going to back to traditional sports every Wednesday, whether you’re five or fifty five, come and have a go at the egg and spoon, sack, wheelbarrow or three-legged races.

Track and Field Thursdays | Join in with our running races, beanbag shot put, long jump and mini hurdles. Surely you deserve an ice-cream after all that?

Friday free for all | Take your pick from any and all of the games on the Parade. From football to archery and verything inbetween.

The activities will be repeated every week of the school holidays, so whether you’re visiting for a day or here for the whole summer, there’s plenty to entertain all ages every day of the week.
