We are thrilled to have been selected as one of the charities to host an Open Garden event at the Bishop’s House this year. We are excited to bring you live music, craft stalls, a tombola, games, refreshments and homemade cakes – all in aid of the appeal to build the new Priscilla Bacon Lodge!

The garden will be open between 1:00pm and 4:30pm, with last entry at 4:00pm.

Entry costs £5.00 per adult. Accompanied children under 16 and wheelchair users are free of charge. Assistance dogs only please.

There will be plants from the garden for sale, with proceeds going towards the running of the garden.

Please note: There will be no parking available at the house. There is a small car park just outside the main gate and a large pay-and-display adjacent to the Adam and Eve pub.


We still have a couple of spaces for stalls at the event and are asking a £20 donation to our appeal for this. Stallholders must have their own Public Liability Insurance. There is also some space for choirs/musical performances. If you are interested in either of these, please contact us at fundraising@priscillabaconhospice.org.uk as soon as possible.

Max 6 people per team.

PalliFest, (formerly known as PBL Fest), is an all day music festival at The Brickmakers pub in Sprowston, celebrating local talent whilst raising funds for Palliative Care charities in Norwich.

Funds will be split between the new Priscilla Bacon Hospice appeal, the Priscilla Bacon Lodge Support Group and the Pink Poppy Fund at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

More details coming soon!

After a really successful VW FAB Fest in 2019, where over £3,000 was raised for the new hospice, we are delighted to have become their permanent chosen charity!

The festival is organised by Terriann and Mark Vincent, and the FAB Family Crew. They are a family-based weekend VW festival and describe themselves as “back to basics, one big old school family festival”. They do say if partying until the early hours is your thing, it may not be your cup of tea!

Sadly the event could not take place in 2020, or 2021 due to the pandemic, so 2022 will see the very popular “Retro Pushbike Show” and “Shine & Show” return, along with a “Scrufts” Dub dog show. A “Dub Tucker Trial” will see contestants take on the FAB v Food trial.

There will be a raffle in aid of our appeal and we will be there on the Saturday and Sunday with a tombola and some other fun and games!

Camping pitches are now SOLD OUT. Advance day tickets can be purchased at a discount here, or you can pay on the gate.

For more info on the event, please see the VW Fab Fest Facebook page.

Join us for a fabulously fun and festive quiz, with chips in the interval and a raffle with some great prizes!

Max 6 people per team.

£3.00 donation entry fee, no need to book.
