Royal Norfolk Show set for special Platinum Jubilee tribute to the Queen

Norfolk’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations are still under way,

with a major tribute planned for the county's flagship summer event this week.

More than 1,000 children will be taking part in a special Royal Salute at

the Royal Norfolk Show, which begins at the Norfolk Showground on Wednesday, June 29.

Sponsored by renewable energy company Equinor, it also features a 60-piece

orchestra, a 100-strong adult choir, samba band, scouts and guides and the African Choir of Norfolk.

Performances will take place at 5.20pm on Wednesday and 5pm on Thursday.

They'll begin with Kwa Heri, sung by the African Choir of Norfolk, a Swahili song

from Kenya, where the young Princess Elizabeth learned of her father’s death and her accession in February 1952.
