When one of our crew suggested a visit to the stylish 1940s, how could we say no ... So we invite you to join us for a step back in time, including 1940s movie night, dance lessons, and the Daisy Belles in concert.

The programme will be added to over the next few weeks, however here is the provisional timetable for the weekend.

Friday Evening

1940s Movie Night, where we’ll show two 1940s related films.
We hope we’ll be showing these films on our big screen in the barracks courtyard (backpackers hostel courtyard), but in the case of inclement weather we’ll head indoors to the Brick Barn.
Please bring your own seats, or arrive early to grab a bench (or possibly a sofa).
We’ll be holding an online vote shortly to decide which films we’ll show, so watch our Facebook page for details.

Saturday

In the afternoon and early evening, enjoy Dance Lessons, 1940s music and hopefully an afternoon tea in the barracks courtyard (backpackers hostel courtyard).

The 1940s Puzzle Room will be open for groups to test their puzzle solving skills, throughout the afternoon and into the evening.

Have your hair and make-up done by Hairaid Shelter.

And the headlining event of the day is the Daisy Belles in concert on the main stage in the Brick Barn.

More will be added to the programme over the next few weeks, so watch this space for more information.



We’d love you to dress up, come and stay in the barracks (backpackers hostel) or on the campsite. The cost if you are staying is your accommodation plus £10 per person.

To book into Deepdale accommodation for the weekend, please call Tel: 01485 210256 or book online.



Day visitors are most welcome, and the price is £15 per person, which will give you access to the film night on Friday, and all activities and the concert on Saturday.

On the beautiful north Norfolk coast, approximately half way between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea.

Coasthopper Bus Service
The Coasthopper Bus Service stops at Deepdale Backpackers & Camping and is a brilliant service, running approximately every 1/2 an hour during the Summer and every hour during the Winter. The service runs both East and West along the North Norfolk Coast, stopping in most villages including King's Lynn, Hunstanton, Burnham Market, Blakeney, Sheringham and Cromer. More information on the service can be found at www.coasthopper.co.uk

Trains
The nearest train station is King's Lynn, which has direct trains from Cambridge and London King's Cross. By changing at Ely and Cambridge you can also catch trains from Stansted Airport, Peterborough and further afield. There is also a station at Sheringham, which has trains to Norwich. The Coasthopper bus service connects with trains at both King's Lynn and Sheringham. Although there are occasional restrictions, you can normally bring your bike on the train.

National Coaches
The nearest national coach station is King's Lynn, which has direct national coaches from Birmingham, Coventry and Leicester, and connects with buses from London at Peterborough. The Coasthopper bus service connects with trains at both King's Lynn and Sheringham. If you are cyclist, then trains are the best option, as you can only put folding bikes on national coaches.

Norfolk Coast Path
The Norfolk Coast Path heads both East and West along the North Norfolk Coast and can be accessed down the lane opposite Dalegate Market (next door). The path offers wonderful walking along sea walls, across boardwalks and beaches. You can link up with the Coasthopper at many points along the path. More information on the path can be found at www.nationaltrail.co.uk/peddarsway

Cycling
Most of the A149 coast road is ok to cycle and there are lots of quiet country lanes inland. From the East (Burnham Market direction), the easiest route is over Whiteway Road. From the West (Docking & King's Lynn direction), the easiest route is down Dalegate Lane. National Cycle Route No1 passes a couple of miles inland. Remember you can hire bikes from Deepdale Bike Hire.

Driving
Naturally we'd encourage you to visit by public transport, walking or cycling, but car drivers are very welcome too. We're approximately half way between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea on A149 coast road.
