People with fond memories of their seaside holidays and trips out to sea can tell their stories for a touring maritime exhibition that is docking in Great Yarmouth.

The Maritime Memories Machine will be at the town's library on Monday, August 14 between 10am and 4pm.

Its visit is part of a national tour organised by the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich and will see stories feature in a new display.

People will be encouraged to tell their coastal and sea-based stories to maritime memory catchers.

The museum says memories could include enjoying sitting in a deckchair, pebbles in flip flops, day trips and journeys made out at sea in storms.

Stories and memories collected during the national tour will be used at the museum's new Sea Things Gallery.
