Colman Project Space and Colman Watercolour Gallery.<br /> http://events.museums.norfolk.gov.uk/public_events.aspx?id=1841 Water Ways: Art & Nature On the Broads <br /> 29 November 2014<br /> None - None <br /> <br />Water Ways: Art and Nature on the Broads explores the landscape and natural habitats of the Broadland environment through the eyes of artists working in the region, mainly in the C19th and early C20th. The exhibition celebrates the extraordinary natural environment of the Broads that makes the area such a rich source of inspiration, relaxation and enjoyment for artists, naturalists and holiday-makers alike. At the heart of the exhibition is work from the Norfolk Museum Service collections of some of the most renowned Broadland painters from the 19th and early 20th centuries: Charles Harmony Harrison, Stephen Batchelder and Arthur Patterson. And works by contemporary artists reveal how this landscape continues to be a rich source of inspiration. Loans from the Museum of the Broads, Norfolk Heritage Centre (including photographs by PH Emerson and John Payne Jennings) and private collections, as well as natural history and archive sound recordings, add to the story of this unique landscape and its importance to the region as a place for both recreation and conservation. <br /> http://events.museums.norfolk.gov.uk/public_events.aspx?id=1931 Jingle Bells Trail <br /> 29 November 2014<br /> 10:00 - 16:00 <br /> <br />Friday 28 November - Saturday 3 January 2015 Try your hand at our Yuletide trail and win a seasonal prize to take home. <br /> http://events.museums.norfolk.gov.uk/public_events.aspx?id=1987 Christmas in the Trenches <br /> 29 November 2014<br /> 10:30 - 16:00 <br /> <br />Inspired by the Christmas truce of 1914, this First World War day includes choral performances of carols, talks by popular speakers and the opportunity to take part in a giant commemorative art project.
