RESIDENTS are showcasing their stories as part of Colchester Castle's latest exhibition.

Eight people have been chosen to tell the tales behind their best bling as part of the castle's Adorn: Jewellery, The Human Story show.

The exhibition's Your Stories display section has featured a collection of members of the public since its launch, with individuals talking on subjects reflecting objects in the rest of the exhibition - from pageant crowds to mourning jewellery.

Julie Young, councillor responsible for culture and performance, said: "Adorn is packed full of remarkable objects with the most incredible stories associated with them.

"I would urge anyone to head to view the exhibition before it closes on the February 16.”
