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.
