Talk & Presentation Night

On Sunday 23rd August we had the pleasure of Dr John Davies, Chief Curator of Norwich Castle Museum, who gave a talk on ‘Norwich Castle Keep’ and the plans for the future of it. John also presented certificates and drawings to those participants who had kindly donated items to the museum.

25th Anniversary Celebrations

On the same evening we also celebrated the 25th year of Discovery Tours.

Unfortunately Jimmy Sierra was unable to be with us this year and we missed having him at the celebrations - he sure would have enjoyed the cake! What a surprise! When we ordered a cake we had no idea the Brook Hotel would come up with an elaborate tribute to Discovery Tours! Thanks to Sarah’s cousin for making it!
