Mr McCallum said: "I'm thrilled to be joining Norfolk Wildlife Trust at the winter festival. The movement to end plastic pollution has put the health of our oceans on the public and political agenda like never before and it's fantastic to see so much interest from people wanting to take action in their own lives on this crucial issue."

In December, there will be the chance for sightings of pink-footed geese and marsh harriers, perhaps even otters. Visitors can learn more about the non-human inhabitants of Cley with a guided circuit of the reserve on the Friday, or a ramble followed by a roast in the café on the Sunday.

There will also be stalls from eco-friendly businesses such as Norfolk Handmade Soaps and Love Spoons Jewellery.

The event will take place between December 5 and 8 and more information can be found by visiting
