Anyone is welcome to attend the event, held on Saturday, and there will be a tour and a chance to have a chat with and meet current volunteers to discuss the opportunities available.

A popular attraction, the museum sees visitors come from around the world to take a look at the traction and agricultural engines.

During its prime, steam engine producer Charles Burrell and Sons employed 350 people from Thetford and surrounding areas.

The museum is run entirely by volunteers with front of house and cafe assistants needed.
