A series of fun summer events and activities will be taking place at the Ancient House Museum of Thetford Life.

The launch event, running as part of a weekly programme of discovery days, will be Meet the Georgians.

The event, which will take place on Tuesday, July 24, will combine a mixture of history, crafts and science.

Visitors can try writing like Thomas Paine by using a quill pen, then have a go at making a Georgian fan and decorating a Georgian mask to take home. They will also be able to sample some 18th century food.

The event will run from 10.30am until 1pm and is £2 per person or £1 for friends of the museum.
