The 'free cuppa' offer at the EDP marquee at the Royal Norfolk Show has proved a hit with readers again.

A long line of visitors were queuing outside the tent on day one of the show to take advantage of the offer.

The free cuppa has become a tradition over the years, but for the first time this year, people will also be able to enjoy a free taste of gin.

The EDP has teamed up with award-winning Norwich distiller Bullards to offer every reader visiting our marquee at the show a free taster of Bullard's world's best London dry gin or their new summer showstopper strawberry and black pepper gin.

Vouchers have been published in the paper which readers can then redeem for a free tea or coffee and free gin tasting when they visit our marquee - at stand 216 - on both days of the show. Cakes and scones will also be on sale at the marquee as well as a selection of soft drinks. Visitors can also enter a competition to win a beautiful Alexander and James 'Bertie' chair, courtesy of Norfolk furniture and homeware company Aldiss.
