Fans of all things quirky and circus are being given a final chance to view a unique collection on show in Great Yarmouth.
The David Howkins Museum of Memories, in King Street, has been shut since the death of its founder Valerie Howkins in November.
It was set up in memory of Mrs Howkins’ son David who died aged 18 from undiagnosed pneumonia and features collections started by her mother.
The displays focus on circus and royal memorabilia with a teddy tableau on the first floor, and the famous stamp room.
The two-day free opening is being staged by her daughter Eva Howkins on September 22 and 23, 10-6pm.
She said: “This is a little something I can do for mum, as she was so passionate that people came and enjoyed it. This looks like being its last opening to the public, as there has been no luck with funding and volunteers.”
