Norwich's Bishop's Garden is giving visitors a rare chance to explore its grounds next month when it opens for the day in aid of the Norfolk & Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB).

People will be able to explore the 'secret gardens' - which only open a few days every year - on Sunday June 10 from 1pm to 5pm.

There will be giant games to play for those exploring the grounds, first laid out by Bishop de Losinga around 1100AD, as well as craft and basket demonstrations and music from the Norwich Community Choir.

Donna Minto, fundraiser at the NNAB, said: 'We are extremely grateful to Bishop Graham for allowing us to benefit from one of the popular open days at the Bishop's Garden this year.

'The garden hyas many hidden delights for visitors.'
