A First World War roadshow which aims to reflect the impact the war had on families and communities across Norfolk will come to the county on Saturday.

The BBC World War One At Home Live Event at The Forum in Norwich is family-friendly and includes hands-on activities, performances and interactive sessions designed to appeal to everyone.

Visitors will be able to make their own ID Permits, have a go at being a war reporter and meet experts from the Imperial War Museums to search their families' connections to the war.

David Clayton, BBC Radio Norfolk's editor, said: 'Our aim is to give people a deeper insight into life on the Home Front 100 years ago, and to enable them to find out more about their own families' involvement.'

The free seven-hour stage show is due to start at 9.45am.
