Families can enjoy hourly readings of The Tiger Who Came to Tea by The Happy Book Club as they munch on the cream teas and cakes that will be on sale.

Throughout the garden party, raffles and garden games will be hosted as well as traditional and craft stalls to keep adults entertained as children dine with their stripy friend before taking part in the trail around the garden in search of the tiger.

A variety of performances will also be taking place from soprano singer Emma Nuule, The Harmummies Choir, Norwich School Young Musicians and the Catton Community Choir.

The party, at the Bishop of Norwich's garden, is £3 admission, with children and wheelchair users free. It is sponsored by Rosedale Funeral Homes, with money raised supporting men and women affected by pregnancy loss.
