Steve Miller, Norfolk County Council’s Assistant Director, Culture and Heritage, is encouraging people to check out their local museum in the run-up to Christmas.  He says “If you’re looking for a pre-Christmas treat for the family or just fancy doing something different to escape the seasonal hustle and bustle, our museums have organised some lovely events.

“Christmas is a wonderful time to soak up the atmosphere at Strangers’ Hall in Norwich. You’ll see the Great Hall and period rooms decked out with traditional seasonal greenery and decorations; and younger visitors can meet Father Christmas too.

“We celebrate the season Victorian style at Lynn Museum and Gressenhall. Whilst the Ancient House in Thetford looks at Christmas 1939, in an event organised by the museum’s Teenage History Club and Norfolk Museums Service Teaching Museum trainees.”
