One of the highlights of this year’s Royal Norfolk Show is sure to be Jimmy’s festival, which features artists and bands from across Norfolk.
Compering the evening on Wednesday, June 27, will be famous comedian Tim FitzHigham.
Mr FitzHigham is best known for his feats such as paddling a paper boat down 160 miles of the River Thames, rowing a bathtub across the English Channel, and inflating the world’s largest man-inflated balloon.
Mr FitzHigham will be making sure the extended evening will run smoothly (or not so smoothly) and treating the audiences to some stand up comedy in between acts.
Mr FitzHigham will introduce the festival at 6.30pm, and will finish the evening by introducing the Big Sing Band at 9.30pm.
The Norfolk-born comedian has won himself acclaim amongst other comedians, with Eddie Izzard saying: “Tim Fitzhigham is unhinged; he’s completely without hinges.”
