A children’s charity is celebrating its 20th anniversary with an open garden event.

Bishop’s Garden in Norwich will be holding a family fair in aid of Care For Children on Sunday, June 3.

Attractions will include traditional schools, a treasure hunt, live music, face painting, a plant sale and the Hawk and Owl Trust, as well as refreshments.

Children and wheelchair users will have free entry but all other will have to pay an entry fee of £4.

Bishop’s House is a private four-acre city centre garden that has belonged to the Bishops of Norwich for over 900 years. The garden includes a Hebe shrub, planted from a sprig taken from Queen Victoria’s wedding bouquet.

Care For Children, which is based in Norwich, partners with governments in Asia to help disadvantaged children in institutionalised care find family-based care instead.

The event will be from 1pm-5pm.
