A Thetford museum has made an appeal for 1960s household goods for a new exhibition.
Ancient House is set to stage a “yesterday and tomorrow” exhibition next year to tell the story of the town's London overspill expansion over 50 years ago.
Officials from the Tudor townhouse in White Hart Street are now calling on residents to loan any items such as clothes, food packaging, curtains, tablecloths, lamps, ornaments, or objects relating to any of the industries, businesses and shops that opened in the town during the 60s.
The exhibition in the changing displays area, which will replace the Thetford Treasure that will soon return to the British Museum, aims to look at the lessons learnt from the past development of the town in the light of the future expansion of Thetford as part of its growth point status.
