A popular Norfolk attraction is set to hold a special event to thank all of its supporters for helping to bring historic stories to life.

The Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse is hosting the event to celebrate Voices from the Workhouse, a three year heritage project that has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and a number of generous supporters.

The project has helped the museum to transform their displays and allowed them to better convey the stories of the people who once lived and worked at the workhouse.

The celebration event will be held on March 10 and admission will be free for players of the National Lottery, as well as for museum pass holders.

It will give visitors the chance to explore new galleries and discover the research behind some of the displays. There will also be a chance to learn techniques for exploring family history.
