“Queen and Prince Charles” set to visit south Norfolk fund day
A free day of fun and celebration is being planned for south Norfolk outside the council's offices on July 8.
The event will be from 11am to 4pm inside and outside the council offices in Long Stratton and is in its third year. Last year, 2,000 residents flocked to the fun.
This year is also extra special and celebrates not just all that is best about local life and the district council - but also 60 years of the Queen's reign and the Olympics.
Four South Norfolk residents have agreed to lend their Olympic torches for the day. They were chosen to be torch bearers during the national tour of Britain which is continuing.
And there will be a visit from lookalikes of the Queen and Prince Charles to judge a fancy dress competition.
This year local musicians The Colour will headline.
They will be joined by street performers, magicians, Bollywood dancers and demonstrations, while the lookalike Royals present prizes to children in the Fancy Dress Prince and Princess competition.
