Children must be accompanied by at least one paying adult at family workshops.

For your information:

  • We strongly recommend you book in advance for Give it a Go! workshops as it is highly unlikely that tickets will be available on the door
  • We expect the carpark to be busy so please allow at least 15-20 mins to park / walk to Norden Farm / pick up tickets / find your workshop
  • Workshops will take place across the building - Norden Farm will be well sign posted, use posters to find out where you should be and check the location on your tickets
  • Our team of friendly Young Leader volunteers will be on hand to help (look out for their lanyards)
  • Have fun!

Disclaimer: Please note that a photographer will be present at some Give it a Go! Workshops. Images will be used for Norden Farm marketing purposes, including, but not limited to, use in printed material such as brochures, on the website and social media, and in local publications. If you do not wish your child to be photographed, please advise our Box Office team on the day (Friday 14 April).

39 minutes ago Get your summer holidays off to a rocking start with a very special Rock 'n' Roll Concertini this Saturday 29 July at 11.30am and 2pm - suitable for all ages! Join Matt Bond and The Poor Boys Good Time Band on a journey of some of the best loved Rock 'n' Roll themes from the 50s and beyond. It’s Rock and Roll with a touch of Yee Ha!

about 2 hours ago With the upcoming screenings of Twentieth Century Women, we’re thinking about female ensemble movies. They may have become a hot Hollywood trend in recent years – with Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters as some of the most interesting examples – but for us the all-time classic has to be Powell and Pressburger’s Black Narcissus (1947). The story of a group of nuns in a Himalayan convent, it’s weird, spine-tingling and utterly beautiful. Check out these swooning reviews of the rerelease below... Have you seen it? Tell us what you think!
