City of Norwich School celebrates its centenary

City of Norwich School is celebrating a very special birthday with an open day. Derek James reports.

After all these years this is your opportunity to walk through...the forbidden front door.

The door in question is at the City of Norwich School which is celebrating its centenary by throwing open its doors for a special open day on Saturday, April 2.

So, if you went to CNS or know anybody who did, this is your invitation to return to the famous school for a special centenary open day.

The school will be open to visitors from 11am until 4pm so why not go along and see much has changed and how much has stayed the same?

Find your old classroom, explore the gym, meet fold friends and discover what they have been up to...and at long last you will be allowed to enter via the forbidden front door.

There will be displays of photographs, cups, shields and other memorabilia charting the long and colourful history of the school.

Through the 100 years of the school's history many music students have become professional musicians and some will be joining students of today and staff to ensure the concert is a real celebration of the musical history of the school.

Tickets are available from the school by calling 01603 274000. The price is �6 for an adult, �3 for a student and �15 for a family of two adults and two children.
