People will be able to find out more about joining the British Army at a recruitment event at Chapelfield Gardens in Norwich this weekend.

Local soldiers from four different army units or corps are involved in the event, including Royal Anglian Regiment (Regular and Reserve), Army Air Corps and Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment.

Soldiers will be there to talk to visitors about their roles in both the Army Reserve and Regular Army.

There will also be the chance to take a ride in a horse-drawn cavalry carriage and see a fuel tanker as well as use a virtual reality headset to experience what it is like to try a parachute jump or drive a Challenger 2 battle tank.

The British Army recruitment event will take place at Chapelfield Gardens from 9am until 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
