the Homes of Football Exhibition at The Forum in Norwich, BBC Voices
and the Norwich City Football Club Historical Trust have teamed up for
the first ever Norwich City FC Antiques Roadshow at The Forum in Norwich.

have a go at recording your own sports radio commentary.
The trust hopes to set up a museum at the club and is keen to hear from
people willing to donate or loan items to their collection.
It is possible that those 'tucked away' items people
have been keeping in drawers and attics could end up pride of place

as well as shirts off the back of players who took the team into the
Premiership this time around.
The trust will bring some of these with them and ex-Canary favourite
Bryan Gunn has also promised to loan items from his own personal collection
especially for the day.
So even if people don't have their own memorabilia,
they can still come along and see what others have got, as well as viewing
treasured mementoes from the club's past.

As an additional attraction to the Antiques Roadshow,
