The Museum of East Anglian Life is celebrating May Day in 70s style, with a day packed full of family fun and activities to get stuck into.

Why not go colour crazy with DIY tie dye socks, knot some nifty bracelets or give yourself a far-out make over? If games are more your thing you can bounce to victory in the Space Hopper race or take on the champion in the Giant Connect 4 challenge.

The Good Life isn’t just for Tom and Barbara – get mucky hands planting in the Walled Garden, meet the animals and learn how to keep chickens.

If you wander down to the 13th century barn, you’ll discover a craft fair with something to tempt everyone - with stalls selling everything from vintage clothing to toys and natural cosmetics to chutney.

Once you’ve exhausted yourself with the fun and games, why not sit back, relax and be entertained with some 70s classics in our pop-up cinema?

Are you a pierced punk, happy hippie or disco diva? There are prizes for those that come in the best funky 70s fashions, so be sure to wear your grooviest gear.

The Super Smashing 70s May Day will go on whatever the weather, so make sure you bring something waterproof, or perhaps just take cover in The Osier Café with a slice of cake and something warm if it starts to rain?
