Big cat fans will not have to travel to deepest Africa to hear stories of wild animals on Saturday when Lion Man Craig Busch comes to North Walsham.

After visiting a few weeks ago, the New Zealand native is returning to the north Norfolk town where he has family connections.

He will regale the audience with stories of his adventures and daring exploits with some of the world's most dangerous animals.

Mr Busch is famous for hosting a television show, The Lion Man, and has bred big cats at a wildlife park in New Zealand.

He will host two shows on Saturday at the King's Arms in Kings Arms Street, North Walsham at 2.30pm and 7pm.

If the event is successful, the King's Arms hopes to make it a regular event.

Tickets are £7 and the shows will last about an hour and a half.
