School children in Dereham are set to enjoy a special theatre performance of The Hobbit, thanks to a national charity.

The pupils from Fred Nicholson School in Dereham, will watch a performance of the classic J.R.R. Tolkien novel by M&M Productions on June 5.

It will be performed at the Happy Days Children’s Charity centre as part of their effort to provide children with special needs with day trips and holidays.

Happy Days Community Fundraiser, Suffia Shah, said: “Our holidays, day trips, workshops and performances are a lifeline to children across the UK providing them with happiness and hope as well as important social and developmental skills.

We help families caring for children with life-limiting conditions, disabilities, abused children and young carers and would encourage anyone in the area that would benefit from a respite break to get in touch.”
