College Farm is a medieval house situated in the village of Thompson three miles from the market town of Watton.  It was built by Katharine's ancestors in 1349 as a College of Priests to serve St Martin's Church and the villagers of Thompson.   The college was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1541 when it then became a private house.

College Farm sits in 17 acres of lawns and woodland on the edge of the village and is the perfect secluded venue for your wedding reception or private party.  B&B accommodation is also available in our en suite rooms.

Our Jacobean dining room is available for hire for private lunch or dinner parties and we also serve traditional cream teas in the garden (weather permitting) or by the fire in the dining room if it's too cold to sit outside.

What is Westacre?  What happens at Westacre and when?  Where is Westacre?  Well, a warm welcome awaits you at Westacre Theatre which has been offering inspiring, inclusive and creative excellence in the heart of West Norfolk for over a quarter of a century.  And Westacre Theatre is probably the only all year-round rural performance venue anywhere in East Anglia.

Why?  You find Theatres in towns and cities – where there are lots of people.  But Westacre is different.  In rolling countryside, Westacre Theatre’s scenic setting comes complete with landscaped lagoon.  In the Summer, the sheltered South-facing terrace hums with audiences eager with anticipation. 

Centrally located just 10 minutes’ drive from Swaffham, 20 minutes from King’s Lynn, and within half an hour of Downham Market, Watton, Dereham, and Fakenham it is easily accessible to most communities in West Norfolk. 

But tucked away in peace and solitude; it remains one of West Norfolk’s best kept secrets.  And once found, everyone always says how lovely it is and ‘Why didn’t we know about Westacre before?’

Westacre attracts all-comers so the volunteers, cast and crew are a happy band performing vital roles in its varied activities.  Many of the team are long-serving troopers; once at Westacre people tend to stay for the friendship and fulfilment. 

West End this is not and nor does it pretend to be.  But The Westacre Theatre Company perform regularly to great acclaim – straight plays of immense integrity and magical musicals too.  As you may expect, Westacre Theatre is more than just a stage.  You can hear every word and see every movement from any of its 80 seats.  The fully-equipped studio theatre is central to its all-inclusive ethos but there are many other parts too.  And the sum of those parts is greater than the converted Chapel where Westacre Theatre was born 25 years ago and is truly a tardis. 

Its own in-house productions are complemented by sourcing the very best Live! and Encore screenings via satellite from the likes of National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare, The Globe and Matthew Bourne.  Fans of mainstream cinema are catered for under the Wednesday Flicks banner showing a carefully selected programme of contemporary films. 

The Riverside Café-Bar serves relaxing drinks, light lunches and simple suppers.  The light and airy Foyer Gallery hosts a continuous back-to-back varied programme of exciting art exhibitions from both up-and-coming and established artists based locally and further afield.  Drama workshops are held weekly and in school holidays for young people from 6 to 18 years old.  Popular art and craft master-classes are all in the repertoire and often over-subscribed.    

There is ample free off-road parking (with surfaced spaces by the door for the less mobile).  A flat floor throughout (including for a universal access loo) goes right to your front row seat in the Studio Theatre.  Give us a look to see what we mean. 

  • W = Wednesday Flicks - The best of contemporary cinema
  • E = Education – Classes in art, crafts and play reading; Bursaries for fortunate students
  • S = Screenings – The satellite link brings world class performances to our full-size screen
  • T = Theatre – Take your pick from well-known favourites or more challenging drama
  • A = Acting – For ages 6 to 18 to create drama without a crisis in weekly drama classes, half term and summer workshops
  • C = Café-Bar – Relaxing drinks at all our performances with light lunches and pre-performance suppers at selected shows – they are very popular so advance booking is wise
  • R = Riverside Walk – A short wander from our sheltered terrace takes you to the tranquil River Nar
  • E = Exhibitions – Artists of all abilities display their latest work in the three distinct spaces open at performance times

Performances and activities are presented in three seasons each year so there is always something new about to take off. www.westacretheatre.com is constantly updated so a visit there will provide you with the pointers you need about what is in store.  But keep checking because fresh productions are being added all the time.  And the value-for-money ticket prices have to be seen to be believed. 

Westacre Theatre is overseen by a charitable foundation so all the support you give to Westacre (just by enjoying a cup of freshly brewed filter coffee, or acquiring that piece of art which caught the corner of your eye) will all go to the worthwhile cause of keeping Westacre Theatre sustainable and alive for the next generation.  The cast and crew is a tiny team but they certainly make it all happen.  Now they are on your radar, do different and try the Theatre that is different too.

Did you know that Pensthorpe Natural Park is not just all about ducks? As well as appealing to nature and gardening enthusiasts, wildlife lovers and bird watchers, it also makes for a perfect day out for families and young children. 

Multiple WINNER of Norfolk's Best Large Attraction*, Pensthorpe is a modern day nature reserve with a focus on inspiring the next generation to enjoy wildlife and the great outdoors – without compromising on the tranquility and calmness that the reserve brings to so many regular visitors.

Former home of BBC Springwatch, the 700 acre reserve is a true showcase for British wildlife; beautiful gardens including one of Norfolk’s largest wildflower meadows which is home to the famous harvest mouse who starred in the recent BBC’s Planet Earth Two series and; more recently, inspiring adventure play, no matter what the weather. Encounter Flamingos, Red Squirrels, and cute ducks that will feed out of the palm of your hand; larger than life bugs on the Bug Trail; and learn more about Pensthorpe Conservation Trust’s 'Actively Saving Species' projects including Operation Turtle Dove, the Great Crane Project and their Corncrake re-introduction programme.

Hop on the Pensthorpe Explorer** for a behind the scenes tour to discover the secret side of the Wensum Valley, enjoy home cooked food in the Courtyard café and shop in one of North Norfolk’s largest gift shops. Families can unwind together in WildRootz, an outdoor adventure play area and Hootz House, the award winning indoor play area, complete with soft play for the under 5s.
