Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse based in Gressenhall, Dereham, will be opening its doors for two days to give people the chance to soak up the festive ambience.

There will be glasses of warmed mulled wine, as well as spiced apple juice and delicious mince pies.

Festive crafts will also be put on and what would a Victorian Christmas be without a sprinkling of ghostly stories and a pantomime performance to keep you entertained?

There will also be a touch of magic when Father Christmas arrives at the museum.
