In 2000, The Royal Hospital School was transformed into a television set when it hosted It’s A Knockout!
The event saw a number of teams from across East Anglia, including from Colchester, Cambridge and Great Yarmouth, battle it out in a series of challenges.
These pictures captured on the day show the many contestants having a blast at the event, which was hosted by Lucy Alexander and refereed by ex-heavyweight boxing champion Frank Bruno.
The spectacle drew in a huge crowd of people to the Holbrook-based school to cheer on those taking part.
It’s A Knockout! first broadcast on British television in 1966. It was reborn in 1999, but its success was shortlived and the final episode aired in January 2001.
