Details

In 2002, John Osborne won a competition on John Peel’s Radio 1 show, writing the slogan “Records you want to hear, played by a man who wants you to hear them”. For any John Peel fans, you can see why that particular slogan was a winner, as it pretty much said exactly what John Peel stood for.

John Peel’s Shed is John’s story of not only how he won and what he won, but also a meander through John’s discovery and love of music and radio.

John has performed this show at festivals and even for Radio 4, so we are very excited to welcome him to Deepdale Backpackers & Camping. You’ll hear John’s story, some of the obscure records he won, and some of his poetry. You’ll have a chance to chat to John during the evening.

This will be what we call a Sitting Room Sunday Session, hosted in the sitting room of the backpackers hostel.
There will be sofas, benches and seats to enjoy great music. We hope there will be a bar, please do bring your own snacks.

We can’t imagine a better end to a early Winter weekend, so why not join us. Book a bed with us in the Hostel or a pitch on the campsite and entrance is included. Otherwise, tickets available in advance from our website for £3.

This gig is part of the developing live music offering at Deepdale Backpackers & Camping - www.deepdalemusic.co.uk

Why not make a long weekend of it, and stay Friday & Saturday night, enjoying a break on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast.

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.
