2021 Events Calendar

October

This all on road Half Marathon starts and finishes in the beautiful grounds of Normanby Hall Country Park. The route follows the picturesque Tour of Britain course from 2017.

Entrants will enjoy a very special finishing medal, chip timing and cake at the finish line. Of course some hedgehogs will be paying a visit!

Curly’s are very happy to be working with local charity Andrew’s Hedgehog Hospital once again to help raise awareness of these fabulous animals and support fundraising towards the amazing work this army of volunteers do.

The Hall-oween Spooktacular returns in October

There will be lots of horrible Halloween activities for you to get involved with, to make sure your visit is spine chillingly spooky, including spine-tingling scare walks, creepy cheerleading shows, fiendish fairground fun and much much more!

This event is open to all – park admission charges apply for non members.

November

10am to 4pm

Discover Japanese Shibori at this adult craft event.

Shibori is a resist dyeing technique which produces unique patterns on fabric. This introduction to Shibori Nui uses running stitch alongside the pleating and folding techniques of this practice, allowing greater control and variation of the patterns.

Shibori produces beautiful patterns on fabric

The morning will be spent stitching patterns into the fabric and the afternoon dyeing. You will leave the workshop with your own designs and new knowledge of the methods of Shibori which you can incorporate into any future projects.

Book your place on Eventbrite.

December

Curly’s are very happy to be partnering up with the Lindsey Lodge Hospice team to bring you not one, but two events and an afternoon & evening of Christmas running fun!

ELF Yourself

Following the success of the 2019 event join us on a mission to help Santa get all of his presents to his sleigh!

Over this 3km course, you’ll visit Elf stations to pick up hats, ears, your Elf name, grab an “Elfie selfie”, pick up your Christmas gift for Santa and then head back to Santa to get ready for his deliveries!

Rudolph’s Revenge

We know Santa only picks the best of the best to pull his sleigh, so this course was designed by lead reindeer Rudolph to make sure the sleigh team has ‘the right stuff’ to deliver the best Christmas ever!

Heading out from the Hall and out of the main park grounds, you disappear off into the winter wonderland woods, past the Deer park for two 5k loops. Don’t forget a head torch!
