An historic church that is normally closed to the public will open as part of this year's Heritage Open Days festival.
St Peter's, Haveringland is hosting displays and activities that will bring the history of the church, village, hall and former RAF Airfield alive.
And there will be stories featuring Henry VIII and Winston Churchill.
Nigel Boldero, one of the organisers, will dress as John Fella, a former gardener of Haveringland Hall.
He said: "I'm going to be helping children sow take-away broad bean pots, and we'll have a churchyard trail so people can find more about the people buried here."

The three-day event runs on September 15, 21 and 22, from 1pm-4pm.
