Heritage Group


The NNAB Heritage Group.

Norfolk has so many beautiful treasures of the past to enjoy, we run a Heritage Group to make sure that those with visual impairment can still enjoy the rich heritage of their county.

We organise visits to places all over the county and beyond to give pleasure, education and an opportunity to get up close and touch the Heritage where possible.  All the visits are tailored to the visually impaired and wherever possible we concentrate on handling collections, special access behind the scenes and talks from experts in a huge variety of venues.

We run a continuous program of events and trips and there is something for everybody, either locally or further afield. Below are the current and upcoming events and visits, please come along to take part, and have an enjoyable day.

King Street is an ever-evolving landscape of living history,

From the 12th century Music House, 15th century Dragon Hall,

To the industrial age of the 19th century,

Let us take you back in time to the early 1900’s. King Street was a bustling industrial street full of pubs, breweries, shops, factories and families living side by side.

Listen while the former residents tell you what it was like for them growing up in King Street, Norwich.

A Free Event.

This tour uses recordings made in 1986 by the Norwich Community Workshop – As part of their King Street Oral History Project.

 

The Unlocking Our Sound Heritage project based at the Norfolk Records Office aims to preserve and provide access to half a million of the nation's rare and unique sound recordings: from collections across the UK.
