Bev Bevan, governor at Norwich Prison, will officially open Wymondham Heritage Museum for its 2017 season at 10.30am.

However the museum is already open for visitors between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Saturday, and between 1pm and 4pm on Sundays.

For 2017 it has been given a more interactive feel, with touch-screen displays offering even more information on the items displayed, while its new exhibition on Wymondham's past and present pubs hopes to draw in the punters.

Other exhibitions include the history of brush-making in the town to the story of Wymondham's most famous inhabitant Robert Kett, who led Kett's Rebellion – the most serious outbreak of unrest during Edward VI's reign.
