Burnham Market will be a hive of activity this weekend with the final day of the rogue traders event today followed by The Burnhams’ Flower Show and Carnival tomorrow.

Curious objects and puzzled shoppers will be the order of the day in Burnham Market with shops and businesses in the village all taking part in an intriguing competition.

Each is displaying, or concealing an object in the window that is not normally associated with their business. There are prizes available for those who manage to identify the objects and fill in the forms, which are available from the Post Office for £1.

The winner of the £25 cash prize will be announced at the Burnhams Flower Show tomorrow.

The Burnhams Flower Show and Carnival will take place from 2pm tomorrow on the village playing field, with plenty of colour and music to brighten your weekend.

The Norwich Samba Band will be leading the carnival parade but you can hear them at 1.30pm when they are performing in front of The Hoste Arms before the parade sets off.

At 1.45pm, the procession makes its way through the village to the playing field on Creake Road where the grand marquee will be waiting with horticultural, cookery, photography and artand craft competitions.

Entertainment in the arena includes a display from the Fakenham 1st Academy of Dance, rousing singing from the Nelson Shantymen, a birds of prey flying display, and the ever popular children’s races.

A free concert will take place in the marquee from 7.30pm, with popular local band My Fat Brother, as well as soul and motown from Kenny Bernard.

There will also be a variety of craft stalls, sideshows, games and children’s entertainers, as well as Gray’s Funfair to provide the thrills.

Refreshments will be served from the beer and tea tents.

Entry to the field costs £2. Children aged 12 and under go free.
