A Norfolk museum is preparing for a summer of great escapes as it creates an LGBTQ+ escape room.
Ancient House Museum, in Thetford, is creating the room for the holidays with the help of the museum's Teenage History Club.
As part of its Helping History Out of the Closet exhibition the room looks to tell the story of members of the LGBTQ+ community from the past decades in Thetford.
Learning officer Melissa Hawker said: "This is a new venture for us.
"We are hosting the events on August 2 to get an idea if it could be a success then we can add it to our programme."
