Proceeds from the event, taking place on Sunday, May 27 and Monday, May 28, will go towards the new village centre being built at the church hall opposite St Nicholas Church.

The rebuild will retain the design of the original arts and crafts facade and will offer the village space and facilities for various activities.

Taking place from 11am to 5pm, the event begins at the church where light lunches and cream teas will be served.

Twenty gardens will be open to the public and thirteen artists in nine locations will also open up their studios, showing off their creative skills in painting, drawing, pottery, fused glass creations, photography, and hand made cards.

Tickets cost £5, or £4 in advance, from Dersingham Post Office and is free for under 16s.
