The cost of the trip is £25 per person, which includes coach travel to and from Fakenham, all guided tours and entry to Colchester castle.

Please arrange to give your cheque(s), made out to The Fakenham Society, to Sinny Mallett, our treasurer, as soon as possible to reserve your seat(s) on the coach.

The Society’s 2017/18 season

The Society arranges a fortnightly series of talks on a wide variety of topics, which happen every other Thursday, from October to March in the Lancaster Room at the Fakenham Sports Centre.

Everybody is welcome at our meetings. We are a friendly crowd and during the evening there is time for socialising over a tea or coffee during a break. This advances one of the Society’s aims of promoting friendships and community spirit.

If you’re not already a member, come along to any meeting and try it out as a guest first.

Membership for the 2017/18 season is £20.00. Guests/Visitors pay £5.00 per meeting. Tea or coffee with a biscuit is available at £1.50.
