‘The Return of Happy Times’ – the title is taken from the saying on a Roman coin – is a documentary film that explores the Burgh Castle Almanac's (BCA) achievements and successes.
The film will be followed by a Q&A with BCA members, who will explain how the group is helping to promote positive mental health in the Waveney area, as well as encourage interest in Norfolk’s heritage.
About the Burgh Castle Almanac
The Burgh Castle Almanac is an archaeology, creativity and wellbeing programme, based at the Roman Fort in Burgh Castle and the Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth.
The BCA had been in existence since 2018, run by the Restoration Trust and funded by the National Lottery as part of the Broads Authority's Water Mills and Marshes project.
Over three successful years, working with the Norfolk Archaeological Trust and local mental health services, the BCA has met every fortnight. They are often joined by artists, archaeologists, naturalists and musicians, who enrich members’ enjoyment of the Burgh Castle site, while helping to encourage positive mental health in the BCA’s members.
