Sprowston High School and Sixth Form will raise money for Norwich Open Christmas 2013 when it holds its second annual Christmas Fair.

The event will bring the curtain down on the school's celebrations of its 50th anniversary this year.

The school decided to support Open Christmas, a charity which provides a free meal, entertainment and a homely atmosphere for those on their own or homeless on Christmas Day.

Headteacher Andrew John said: 'I am delighted that we are able to promote the excellent work of this charity, who do much to bring a Christmas Day experience to so many members of our Norwich community.'

Norwich Open Christmas last year celebrated its 21st anniversary, and is held in St Andrew's Hall, Norwich, where people can come for free on the day, and without a booking.

The fair is free to visitors, and there will be plenty of on-site parking.
