The championships will be the star attraction at the Broads fun day extravaganza, which is being held at Barton Turf Adventure Centre, near Neatishead.

Other activities on offer include pond dipping, boat trips, wherry sailing, minibeast hunting, children's crafts, geocaching, bush craft, willow work, face painting, teddy bear games, and wildlife rescue, and there will be refreshments.

Broads Authority education officer Nick Sanderson said: “Parents and kids alike will love the unusual activities which we have on offer, from getting out on the water to having a chance to interact with Broads wildlife up close.”

Entry is free but there may be individual charges for particular activities. The fun day runs between 11am and 4pm on Sunday, May 12.
