Village Voice Live returns

After a break of a couple of months, our popular illustrated talks will return this Tuesday 12th April at 7.30pm. The speaker will be Sue Gattuso from the Swaffham Museum, who will talk about the fascinating life of Howard Carter, who famously discovered the tomb of Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun. Carter was a Swaffham resident before he left for Egypt and the museum has many tales to tell.

Tickets are sold on the door of the Village Centre at a cost of £6. This includes a ticket for the raffle draw and a cup of tea, coffee etc and maybe even a piece of cake!
