Norden Farm Market

Visiting the market is the perfect way to spend your weekend.

Our summer markets are inspired by the summer night markets of southern France, we bring you a laid back evening of shopping and feasting to a backdrop of music.

Shop for unusual, handmade, delicious items and then take in a film or recline with a coffee in our Café Bar where there are plenty of books and games to keep little ones happy.

Free Entry

Norden Farm Night Markets Sat 3 Aug and Sat 7 Sept 6pm - 9pm

Dogs are welcome at the outdoor markets.

If you would like to enquire about a stall at one of our upcoming markets, please email our team at [email protected]

Round off the summer holidays in style with an afternoon of fun for all the community! Bring your kite creations, pre-owned or shop bought kites and join our team to fly them on the hill.

Find out more and book tickets for our Kite Making Workshops this summer here.

You can also purchase a Kite Decorating Kit on the day (subject to availability). Everyone is welcome, with or without a kite!

As well as all the kite flying fun, the afternoon will include food from local vendors and a bar.

Don't forget to bring along your picnic blanket or camping chairs and get set for an unmissable afternoon of entertainment.

This year’s live performance headliner is Levantes Dance Theatre who present – High Tea (with a Twist). Dressed to impress as always, the Canapé Art twins perform dance and acrobatics above a tastefully laid tea table, and mingle with the crowd for selfies and a cuppa. Expect glittery cakes, outrageous costumes and theatrical high jinx in an explosion of bright colour and silliness!


This year's line up includes:

★ Kite decorating and flying (of course!)

★ High Tea (with a Twist) from Levantes Dance Theatre - expect glittery cakes, outrageous costumes and theatrical high jinx in an explosion of bright colour and silliness from this dance and acrobatic duo!

★ Mariachi las Adelitas - the only female Mariachi band in Europe will be regaling visitors around the festival

★ Euphoria will be performing high energy rock / indie covers

★ Plus storytelling from Simon Mole

Please note that Kite Decorating on the day is subject to capacity and availability. Visit our Kite Making Workshop page here for details of how you can get involved over the summer and make you kite in advance.

This year, you can also get involved in free Flower Making Workshops ahead of the Kite Festival - to help make giant decorations for the event. A fabulous opportunity for all ages to work with artist Aysha Khan to get creative and collaborate with the community.
