As North Hertfordshire Museum gears up for its grand opening this weekend, we’ve had a sneak peek at what’s in store.

After a long-running saga, North Herts Museum will finally open its doors to the public on Saturday.

Visitors can expect family activites and a range of exhibitions that feature art, archaeology, nature, football and even a Victorian chemist's shop.

Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Neville Reyner, will cut the ribbon and declare the museum officially open.

Also on offer will be aspiring rappers from Samuel Lucas JMI School in Hitchin.
