There will be a royal flavour to the next Norwich Original Fleamarket being held at St Andrews Hall in Norwich this Saturday.

Coinciding with the day of the Queen’s 86th birthday, and in her Diamond Jubilee year, the fleamarket will be putting together a range of commemorative pieces.

One of the students from the Jubilee Journalist initiative, run by the EDP, BBC Radio Norfolk and Norfolk County Council, will be making a short film focusing on royal memorabilia down the years at the fleamarket.

Kieran Raza, a pupil from Notre Dame High School, is one of the 12 winners picked to work at the BBC Voices studio. His completed film will be broadcast on the big screen in Chapelfield Plain during the Jubilee weekend.

The fleamarket re-launched as a monthly event this year and organiser, Helen Leith, said this Saturday’s event, between 9am and 4pm, had been completely booked out for almost a month.

She said: “I am thrilled with the growth of the event, the positive reception from the public, and the relationship we are building with local charities.”

This Saturday the fleamarket is supporting the Break charity, which will be selling items from its vintage shop in Banham.

Entry is £1 and free to under-18s. For more details, call 01603 630763 or go to www.cloistersfair.com
