Title-winning silverware and a Masterchef finalist are among the highlights at a forthcoming community fun day.
Northgate High School and Dereham Sixth Form Community Day will be held at the high school from 2.30pm on Monday, July 22, offering an abundance of activities and performances.
All proceeds from the free extravaganza, which students have helped to organise, will go to Dementia Friendly Dereham and mental health projects in the school and college.
Once the event has been opened by a 200-strong community choir, General The Lord Dannatt and his wife Lady Dannatt will cut the ribbon and formally begin the afternoon.
Visitors can then have their photo taken with the EFL Championship trophy, held aloft by Norwich City's title-winning squead just a few weeks ago.
Former Masterchef finalist and owner of Macarons and More, Tim Kinnaird, will meanwhile judge a cooking competition featuring local sports clubs and their 'signature dish'.
A police dog display can also be enjoyed, while the medal-winning garden produced by Northgate pupils for this year's Royal Norfolk Show will be recreated.
