A Feast of Food & History! Sunday 23rd July

© Nick Stone, 2017 - Thanks to Nick for granting us permission
to share his brilliant 'ghost' photography.
On Sunday 23rd July Colin Howey of Magdalen Walks will be leading a food/drink themed walk exploring some of the fascinating  history, archaeology and heritage of the Magdalen Street area. 

This will last just over an hour - long enough to work up an appetite! 

Happily, we will finish the walk at the Silver Road Community Centre where members of our 'sister' group, Magdalen Eats', will be cooking up a great BBQ. 

Come along for a feast of history and food - a real taste of what the community of Norwich Over The Water has to offer!

Sunday 23rd July.

Assembly Point
Sahara Café, Magdalen Street (opposite Anglia Square).

Start time and duration
Although the walk leaves the lovely Sahara Café at 11am I would encourage all participants to come and have a drink before we move off. Café opens at 10:30am. The walk will last no more than an hour and a quarter. 

£5.90 per person

Payment methods:


You can pay in cash on the day. However, if this is your preferred option, please can you book places via Colin so that we have an indication of how many people to expect.


Alternatively, you can pay in advance via Eventbrite
