Fritton Owl Sanctuary is holding its annual charity event this Easter.

There will be opportunities to hold an owl or another bird of prey from Hawking Experience.

A classic cars display will be on site, the Lowestoft 'signing' choir will be performing throughout the day, and a wood carver will be creating wooden animals and birds.

There will be several stalls including a tombola, raffle and crafts. At 3pm there will be a plant auction, by Fritton Plant Centre.
