The Maud is the last of the clinker-built trading wherries to sail on the Norfolk Broads and The Wherry Maud Trust was established in 2015 to help maintain the boat.

The exhibition will showcase a variety of work from regional artists, including photography and craft items, which will be up for sale.

Another display will detail the history of the Wherry Maud, and the wherry itself will be moored for visitors to view.

A raffle will also offer visitors the chance to win membership of the Wherry Maud Trust for two people, plus a trip on the Maud.

A range of refreshments will be available to visitors.

All proceeds from the exhibition will go towards the maintenance of the Wherry Maud.

The event will be held over May 6 and 7 from 10am to 5pm at Ranworth Village Hall, Broad Road, Ranworth.
