Norwich station goes vintage for heritage open days

Norwich station had a vintage feel today as costumed characters took to the trains to promote the city's heritage.

The Norwich Heritage Economic and Regeneration Trust (HEART) are holding open days from September 6 to 9 to celebrate the city's architecture and culture.

It will include open buildings, guided tours, exhibitions, talks, family activities, music recitals and re-enactment, as well as free access to usually restricted properties. Sophie Cabot, engagement manager at HEART, was in costume at the station to encourage people to use trains for the open days.

She said: 'We want to show off the fantastic heritage we have. If you don't know about all the heritage we have then the days in September is a great opportunity to come and visit.'

Joy Evitt, chair of the Costume and Textile Association in Norwich, was dressed in her own vintage clothing and said she was pleased to be a part of the heritage events.
