Ringmasters, ribbon twirlers, strong men and tightrope walkers all helped a Norwich school’s float claim a winning prize.
Youngsters at Catton Grove Primary School are still celebrating after clinching first place in this year’s Lord Mayor’s Procession, which took place on Saturday.
The display saw the youngsters dressed in black and white, twirling, spinning and marching their way through their well-rehearsed routine in the city centre.
It was one of 64 floats made by clubs, groups and schools who all got involved with this year’s Circus 250 theme, a national celebration of 250 years of circus around the country.
The school was followed in second place by Framtastics Gymnastics Club and, in third place, Angel Road Federation of Schools.
The procession came as part of the Lord Mayor’s Celebration, a weekend of events and activities to celebrate the fine city.
