An event to mark the 60th anniversary of Britain's first thermonuclear bomb test has changed location.
The Anglia branch of the British Nuclear Test Veterans Association wants to hear from people who witnessed any of the UK's hydrogen bomb tests.
The anniversary event aims to highlight the lasting damage radiation has on the human body.
Anyone from Norfolk involved the tests - as well as their family members - are welcome to attend.
Gordon Wilcox, 80, from Attleborough, witnessed two hydrogen bomb tests in the 1950s.
As part of the event, he wants to hear from veterans who have suffered ill-health as a result of the blasts.
He claims many veterans from Norfolk and their families have been affected.
