Imagine what Norwich will look like in 100 years.

About this event

Each activity will include information from the archives followed by a craft activity to create something you can take home with you.

The sessions will run for 90 minutes.

In 1935 W Watting drew a picture of what Norwich may have looked like in 100 years time. His picture, including landing tower for aeroplanes, monorail to the houses and blocks of flats around the outskirts of the city, forms our inspiration for this session. Take a look at some of the real proposals for Norwich, including a flyover on Carrow Road, and a number of variations for City Hall, before grabbing the lentils, fabric, cork, paper other materials and create a collage of a future building or invention.

Also during this session help us to create a large scale map of the Norwich of the future by inventing a building to go on it. The finished map will be displayed in the Long Gallery during Heritage Open Days in September.

 £3.50 per child. Aimed at children aged 5-11 years. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult. Adults are free, but need to book a space
