It will all be open to fundraisers and members of the public on the big night and the museum is inviting members of the public to come long and share in Pudsey’s party.
Michael Sweeney, NMMC communications manager, said staff at the museum were “incredibly excited” to be hosting the event.
“As with last year’s Antiques Roadshow, this is another example of the Maritime Museum bringing the media spotlight to shine on what Falmouth has to offer.
And, of course, BBC Children in Need is such a worthwhile cause that staff and volunteers at the museum are only too happy to get behind it.”
It promises to be a fun-packed day with abseiling from the museum’s tower.
Pudsey bear and a BBC Presenter, if they’re brave enough, will make the descent,
There will be live musical performances in the museum’s Main Hall, and creative craft activities for children throughout the evening.
A highlight of the event will be a performance by the BBC south west regions’ 200-strong children’s choir, linking across the UK for a national choral performance.
The choir will be made up of children from across Cornwall with the performance being staged in the Museum’s Main Hall beneath the flotilla of flying boats suspended from the ceiling.
Local fundraisers and the public are invited to Pudsey’s party, and if you would like to come along e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, tell Pudsey what you’re doing to raise money, how many people are in your group, and they’ll just send you the tickets.
