Free events included live music, with deckchairs set out in front of a stage erected on Chapelfield Plain, while the inside of the shopping centre hosted a giant helter skelter, stilt walkers, balloon modellers and facepainters.

Christopher and Hilary Barker, of College Road, Norwich, bagged front row deck chair seats as the first band to take the stage on Sunday started to warm up for their act.

Sitting in the sunshine, they said the city centre had seemed busier than usual over the weekend, and they had enjoyed the previous night's fireworks for the Lord Mayor's Celebrations from Mousehold Heath.

Mr Barker said: 'This is good for everyone, and gives a chance for everyone to take part.

'We came in because they said there was an extra day on the Sunday, and there were a lot of events coming up, and we thought we would pop in and have a look, and do some shopping.

'It's all good for the city.'
