You could celebrate Mothering Sunday with flowers, crafts and a free cream tea for all the mums at Gressenhall Farm & Workhouse, near Dereham.

The spring flowers are coming into bloom so you can spend some precious time together exploring the 50-acre site.

Visitors can also discover the Victorian language of flowers, learn about the fascinating floral objects in the museum collections and have a go at making their own paper tissue flowers - each with its own unique meaning.

There is also a chance to look behind the scenes at the Norfolk Collections Centre and have a go a designing and making a printed Mother’s Day card.

In the Mardlers’ Rest Café, a free cream tea is on offer for all mothers.

Mother’s Day, a day with a difference, runs from 10am to 5pm tomorrow (Sunday).

All activities included within admission.

‘Into Thin Air’ by Rob John is a new play presented by fEAST Theatre. It played to a packed house at Wells Maltings Theatre Wednesday evening. I imagine that the ‘bush telegraph’ from other venues where this play had been was in operation for there was not a spare seat in the house.

Take one heritage railway, mix in some fear, add a dash of terror and a splash of every phobia going for good measure, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for a night on the Horror Train.
