Arts and crafts fans will be able to pick up locally-made pieces as well as support a children's hospice.

A pop-up shop selling work by more than 40 artists is open at the historic Houghton Hall, near King's Lynn, until July 15.

It is running alongside the popular Damien Hirst exhibition and is raising money for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

EACH supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex.

In Norfolk EACH will replace its Quidenham hospice with the new £10m nook hospice in Framingham Earl, due to open next summer.
