Please note that bookings for the rally are now full but you can still attend this event.

Welcome to the Annual Norfolk Open Churches Run, organised by Richard and Maurice with the help of the Norwich Diocesan office. It’s the event which kicks off the 2020 Norfolk Open Churches Week and 8 specially selected Churches will be open with help on hand to enable you to learn more and to best enjoy the beauty of some of Norfolk’s lovely churches.

This year’s Run ‘into Broadland and to the coast’ is an interesting route starting from Norwich Cathedral, which you are welcome to visit if you have time. On your route you will pass by over 20 other Churches, (and several close-by) which will be highlighted in your Route Book.

Light refreshments will be offered at selected Churches and you may care to take your own picnic for lunch. On the route there are picnic spots given, together with pubs and cafés where refreshments can be taken. At completion of the Run you’ll find snacks and drinks available at the final Church and in the town close-by.

Entry fee is £20 for a car with driver +1 passenger. Extra passengers £5 each. The entry charge provides you with coffee or tea and pastry/sausage roll in The Refectory Café before the start; a Rally Plaque; and a detailed Route Book.

The route will travel through the heart of Broadland and finish right by the north Norfolk Coast, where we will have a short ‘pit-stop’ service which will be with the Canon Precentor of Norwich Cathedral, Aidan Platten and the Revd Andrew Jones. We hope you will join us for the service.

Please send in your Entry Form to reserve your place as soon as you can for this popular event – as parking numbers are limited by the Cathedral west door.

Profits from the Run will go towards the maintenance and upkeep of Norwich Cathedral.
