Rugby World Cup final referee Nigel Owens will be the special guest at the biggest sporting dinner in the east.
Some 600 people will be at Wymondham Rugby Club's annual fundraising dinner on May 17 to hear from the man who is used to taking control of games watched by millions of fans.
'It's fantastic that Nigel can make it this year,' explained WRFC chairman, Andrew Kilby. 'We had got Nigel booked last year but he had to take charge of the Champions Cup final so couldn't come.
Welshman Owens is known his quick-witted put-downs of players in a sport where the ref is frequently one of the smallest people on the pitch.
Any bad behaviour can expect to be met with the reminder: 'This is not soccer!'
