Jubilee exhibition begins at Thetford Library

10:50 02 May 2012

Fancy dress competitions, races and good-old-fashioned tea parties are the subject of a special exhibition marking the Queen’s diamond jubilee.

The Festival of Breckland Jubilee Memories Exhibition has opened at Thetford Library and will run there until May 8.

The exhibition explores how people have celebrated jubilee events during the past 60 years, from feasts to festivals portrayed by photographs and memorabilia from past celebrations.

Lynda Turner, executive member for localism, community and environmental services said: “I think the exhibition will bring back memories for many people and, as we are coming up to date with the Diamond Jubilee, it can bring back memories for people of all ages. Breckland does seem to enjoy royal celebrations.”

The exhibition will visit Swaffham on May 8, Dereham on May 14, Watton on May 21 and Attleborough on May 28, for a week each.
