Here’s what we got up to last week…

Last week was a busy one for the Norfolk Record Office!

For our first half term activity on Tuesday the children learnt about World War One propaganda and posters. They then chose to either paint a template of a real WW1 poster, or they designed their own.

By Thursday, the NRO building was transformed into a Halloween spectacle filled with flying witches and bats, plus a couple of ghosts and ghouls wandering up and down the Long Gallery.

In the evening visitors listened to creepy stories taken from the archives and looked at original documents relating to gruesome deaths, witch hunting, and the paranormal. One person was also the lucky winner of the book ‘Paranormal Norfolk’ written by one of our archivists, Frank Meeres.

And here is Frank reading a ghost story…

On Friday afternoon our children’s Halloween activity included making and decorating pom pom spiders, hanging bats, trick or treat bags and tea light holders. As usual, the children were very imaginative and creative!
