The R34 airship commemoration reaches its climax on Saturday 13 July. This was the day in 1919 when the dirigible came back to Pulham after its double Atlantic crossing. An R34 blimp will be seen over Diss. In the Market Place from 11am a piper will acknowledge the Scots origins of the voyage. Period dancers will appear at 11.30, 12.30, 2.00 and 3.00 and give workshops. There will be memorabilia stalls outside the museum and a children's treasure hunt. Inside is a great exhibition with augmented reality. More displays are in the church. In the evening at the Corn Hall there is the musical show All Aboard the R34. Sunday morning, an R34 themed church service at 10.30 in St. Mary's, with film, slides, period hymns and readings in character from the R34 Log. See the Diss Museum Facebook page.
