Night at the Museums brings stories festival to life
Museums, libraries, heritage and wildlife sites are hosting 24 free events for all ages during the North Norfolk Stories Festival next week.
The Festival runs from Thursday to Saturday, May 12 to 14, and is part of Museums at Night, the national annual after-hours festival of arts, culture and heritage.
Come across pirates, ghosts, Einstein, 1940s fashion, 1950s music and much more as venues throw open their doors and invite visitors to enjoy performances, family activities, exhibitions, music and talks.
Many events are taking place at twilight when the venues are normally shut, creating a unique opportunity and atmosphere for visitors to explore the sites, learn something new and have fun.
The festival gives visitors the chance to explore and enjoy the area's fascinating history, including some lesser known stories from the past.

It's a great chance for people to get out and about and experience venues in a different way.'
