Special Events at The Control Tower

Control Tower Calling – Book by Nigel Morter (aka Mr Control Tower)

Control Tower Calling book by Nigel Morter Launching for D-Day 80th Anniversary at The Control Tower Bed and Breakfast

Saturday 8th June 2024

80 years ago, preparations were under way to set up a new bomber station in a sleeping corner of North Norfolk. Soon 199 Squadron would be training for Operation Overlord. D-Day was the first most secret operation from RAF North Creake.

With so few veterans left to tell their stories, sadly the Second World War is slipping from living memory. However, public interest has never been so strong thanks to huge blockbusters like Masters of the Air.

On a more personal scale, in June this year, Claire Nugent and Nigel Morter are hosting a series of D-Day 80 Events at the Control Tower on the old North Creake airfield to mark this milestone Anniversary which also happens to be the 10th Anniversary of their B&B opening and with crowdfund support, they plan to launch Control Tower Calling – Nigel’s book on the history of this secret station in parallel with the story of Claire and Nigel’s love affair with the Control Tower.

D-Day 80th Anniversary – be part of #OperationCelebration

Tower Takeovers

Alternatively, if you would like to book the tower for a group of up to 8 guests we could work out a special stay for you.

This group of dapper friends booked a Tower Takeover two day stay with us. They arrived to a cuppa followed by a moving history tour on the anniversary of one of our aircraft losses.

As they had booked all our B&B rooms they were able to make full use of our guest lounge in the evenings. We cooked them a special war time themed 3 course meal one evening.

If you would like to book the tower for a group of up to 8 guests we could work out a special stay for you with the option of a history tour and/or dinner for you and your guests.

Room tariffs range between £125-£175 per night. We offer a minimum of two night stays. Depending on what you might like as extras we can work these out for you.

If some of these events tickle your fancy but you cannot make these dates we may have others in the future.  You can join our mailing list if you want to know more. 
Please let us know if any of our events are sold out and you would like to go on our waiting list.
