Watton's new museum will be opening its door for a special one-off event.
The Museum4Watton group will open its premises to the public during the town's carnival on Sunday, September 3.
Chris Hutchings, chairman of the Trustees, said: 'We have had a pop-up museum in the High Street on carnival day for the last two years, but felt that this year, we would like to show our premises in Wayland Hall to the public along with a few of the items from our collection.'
Between 11am and 3pm there will be tea and coffee, and displays including documents relating to the Church and clock tower, and RAF Watton.
