A plea has gone out to find descendants of the bread rioters to be captured in a special photograph to mark the 200th anniversary.

The Field Theatre Group and Adam’s Heritage Centre are looking for descendants of any of the convicted rioters to be in a special commemorative photograph to mark two centuries since the Littleport Riots.

If you are related to any of them then go along to the Adams Heritage Centre in Main St, Littleport, on Saturday February 13 at 2.30 pm.

The commemorative photograph will be reproduced and presented to local schools, libraries and other organisations.

The photoshoot is open to descendants of all ages, and transport can be provided if needed.
