The Garden Party takes place every year and celebrates the middle weekend of the Norfolk & Norwich Festival which runs until May 26.

The two-day party, which runs from 12pm to 6pm, has plenty of surprises including acrobatics, circus and street theatre on display at different zones in the park.

Popular activities taking place include the time machine disco, which offers a clubbing journey through the ages, a make-your-own puppet area and Les Gloriables masterclass in mutiny inspired by Les Miserables.

There is also a jam-packed programme in the Adnams Spiegeltent, including The Ragroof Top Hat and Tails Tea Dance and title circus show A Simple Space.

You can purchase tickets to all Norfolk & Norwich Festival shows at nnfestival.org.uk.
