The Battle of the Somme, which began 100 years ago, will be the focus of a major First World War exhibition in North Walsham on Saturday.
The event, in The Atrium, on Spenser Avenue, will see free film screenings of The Trench at 11am and 2pm, starring Daniel Craig, an exhibition of artefacts, displays by local organisations - including a living history group - poetry readings by North Walsham High School pupils, and a 12.30pm performance by the Ukes of Hazard ukulele orchestra.
The event, on October 22, from 10am-5pm, is free and the café will be open all day with offerings including trench cake.
It is the third of five annual commemorations in the town marking the centenary of the 1914-1918 conflict and has been organised by the Royal British Legion and Arts North Norfolk, supported by North Walsham Town Council.
