Beer and Brewing

Beer and Brewing - Norfolk’s Rural Pubs

A temporary exhibition running until 28 October 2018

This exciting new temporary exhibition at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, explores Norfolk’s pubs and brewing industry both in the past and today.  ‘Beer and Brewing – Norfolk’s Rural Pubs’ showcases objects from pubs no longer trading such as The Kings Arms in Shipdham.  The exhibition looks at the demise of the rural pub and lengths that communities are going to, to saving their local watering hole. Visitors will be made to consider why pubs are in decline and what we can do about it.  Families can take a turn on the traditional Norfolk game of twizzler.  For the first time ever, see the plaster panel from the Jolly Farmers pub in King’s Lynn created by the artist John Moray-Smith in 1948.

If you are inspired by our temporary exhibition this year and and would like to make something to be displayed at Gressenhall then please visit the Collaborate with Gressenhall blog.
