Big Brother and Braniac star Jon Tickle to open Norfolk school’s fete

Former Big Brother star Jon Tickle will open Brundall Primary School's annual fete this month.

This year's fete takes the form of a 'Discovery Fayre', allowing children and adults alike to explore science, nature, art and sport.

Taking place at the school on Saturday, September 17, between midday and 4pm, the event aims to inspire new skills and develop new hobbies.

There will be the usual traditional games, barbecue, raffle, and craft stalls, as well as drama and drumming workshops, opportunities to explore the wildlife of the Broads by pond-dipping and a 'Brundall's Got Talent' competition.

Mr Tickle, also famous for his TV role on Brainiac, will open the fete at midday, which is being held to raise funds for the development of a cookery room and the refurbishment of the school's practical area.

Siwsan Jones, chair of Friends of Brundall School, the school's parent-teacher association, said: 'Our annual fete is always a great fundraiser for the school, enabling us to buy resources that we would otherwise be unable to purchase.

'This year we are confident that the Discovery Fayre will intrigue and entertain young and old alike.'
