Children in North Walsham are preparing for a mighty battle this weekend.

They are rehearsing for the Salvation Army's production of the Giant Slayer - and tells the biblical story in fun style of David and Goliath.

The 20 strong cast will perform the mini musical at the Atrium theatre in town on Sunday, July 17, at 4pm.

It follows the success of the sell-out production Jonah which they performed at the Atrium last year.

Major Richard Durrant, from the Salvation Army, said: 'It is a fun, action packed story with a variety of songs, as the children enthusiastically portray this exciting story from the bible.

Tickets priced £3 each are available from the Army shop in Church Street or from Arts north Norfolk shop in town, as well as on the door on the day.
