Escapades in Holt


Holt, a market town in Norfolk is a very distinctive place with a distinctive character. Join mascot Olly for a fascinating insight into the town through his 'Escapades in Holt'.

An exciting new children's book flies onto the bookshelves. Based on historic stories about the town of Holt, and illustrated in full colour, we meet a humorous and quirky cast of characters who weave in and out of the pages following Olly the owl, the town mascot.

'ESCAPADES IN HOLT' is designed to encourage local families and visitors to explore the town via a trail and brings history to life. Published by The Holt Society, the book is intended to 'make history come alive' for the young generation of Holt.

Available from The Holt Bookshop, Baby O, Bakers & Larners of Holt, Budgens of Holt, The Owl Tearooms, Pensthorpe Natural Park, Ryburgh Village Shop, The Tannery or contact the Holt Society direct to place your order at
