Sir Thomas pays a visit to the Maids Head in advance of Norfolk Day event

The Pastons will be paying a return visit to the Maids Head on Norfolk Day this year, and Sir Thomas Paston (aka Dr Rob Knee) popped in this week to get the lie of the land.

It will for a while be 1549, the time of Kett’s Rebellion, and Sir Thomas Paston will be telling tales of his involvement during this tumultuous period in the history of Norwich. The costumed talk will include readings from the Paston Letters.

The plan is to start at 10.30am with tea, coffee and cake, followed by the talk and a Q&A session, and the hotel will be selling tickets via Eventbrite with donations to Break. The aim is to attract 40 people, and there is a rumour of a walk being arranged in the afternoon.
