Pudsey To Visit Corinium Museum - Children In Need

The new-look Pudsey bear will be getting his paws on the past when he pops into the Corinium Museum as part of this year's BBC Children in Need Appeal on Friday, November 16th.

Pudsey will be visiting the Cirencester attraction to join the BBC Radio Gloucestershire team, who are broadcasting live from the venue during the station's mid-morning show.

The theme of the show is a school trip and reporter Camilla Bassett-Smith will be finding out what the Romans did for Cirencester with the help of Curator John Paddock.

Local Children in Need supporters are being urged to visit the BBC team at the District Council-owned museum in Park Street between 9am and 12 noon to share their fund-raising news.

Pudsey - who has been given a fresh new look and brighter colours for the 28th annual appeal - will be dropping in at approximately 11.30am. He’ll be meeting just a few of the 9,500 school pupils who visit the Museum each year.

Dr Paddock said: "We're delighted to welcome BBC Radio Gloucestershire to the museum in support of such a great cause. We'll be teaching them a thing or two about the Romans - listeners might be quite surprised to find out just how much they did for Cirencester!"

The 2007 BBC Children in Need Appeal, which raises funds for disadvantaged children and young people in the UK, is hoping to beat the £33 million raised in 2006.
