Family fun at Chapelfield Gardens in Norwich

Families have been having fun in a city park as part of the Lord Mayor's Celebrations.

Punch and Judy shows, circus tricks, storytelling and funfair rides were among the things to entertain the crowds at Chapelfield Gardens on Saturday and Sunday.

And despite some spells of rain everyone in the park seemed to have a brilliant time.

Bryan Clark, who performed the Punch and Judy shows, said the shows had been good fun and had had great audiences.

Sprowston-based Foolhardy Circus was also at the park and gave children the chance to have a go at all sorts of circus skills including juggling, plate spinning and walking on stilts.
