A star of children's television will be in Norwich this weekend at a family concert being staged by a city-based orchestra.

Paul Ewing, former presenter of CBeebies show Tikkabilla, will present and narrate All The Fun Of The Circus, being staged by the Norwich-based Mozart Orchestra.

Mr Ewing, a talented actor and musician, will join the orchestra in a programme of circus-themed music which will include the traditional circus tune Dance of the Gladiators, Rimsky-Korsakov's Dance of the Tumblers, as well as a narrated performance of a musical story called Trunks: A Circus Story.

The programme also includes music from the film Pirates of the Caribbean, and a piece for 11 percussionists called Festival Calypso, composed by Norfolk musicians Barry Wilson and Andy Newman - with Mr Ewing joining the orchestra's percussion section.

This is the seventh time the orchestra has mounted a family concert, with previous stars including Blue Peter's Simon Thomas and CBBC's Jake Humphries.

Tickets for the concert, which takes placed at St Andrew's Hall at 3pm on Sunday, are £6 each, or £25 for a family ticket for five people. They are available from Prelude Records in St Giles Street Norwich, or by phoning 01603 628319; and will also be for sale on the door, subject to availability.
