2024 marks the start of the celebrations of the 125th anniversary of the historic Norfolk trading wherry, “Maud”, being built and the 25th anniversary of her successful restoration and re-commissioning. “Maud” is a very special wherry, the last of the typical clinker-built trading wherries to sail on the Norfolk Broads and Rivers.

Wherry Maud Trust are holding an Artists & Makers Show, as a major fundraiser for the ongoing maintenance of “Maud”. The show will take place from 10am until 5pm on Sunday, 5th May and Monday, 6th May with admission being free.

The event will showcase the work of East Anglian artists and craftspeople. Hanging work will be on display in various media – watercolour, oil, acrylic and prints. Other items for sale will include wood-turned pieces, studio pottery and textiles.

Teas, coffees and home-made cakes will be served throughout the two days.

Visitors will be welcomed by volunteer members of the Trust who will be happy to chat about “Maud”, her history and current use. “Maud” will be available for viewing and will be moored at the Broadland Conservation Centre at Ranworth (Norfolk Wildlife Trust).
