From all the fun of the fair in Chapelfield Gardens to a vibrant mix of acts entertaining the crowds gathered around The Forum stage, there is a huge variety of events for people of all ages to enjoy.

Among those having fun in Chapelfield Gardens was Richard Warminger, 42, and his six-year-old daughter Poppy who had been going on all the rides and was delighted to have won a teddy bear.

Mr Warminger, from Norwich, said: 'We have been having a great time. We just like it all. It's a nice thing to see in the city.'

Rahim Ali, 31, and his partner Aki Begum, 23, who live in the city centre, were also at the park with their children Aria, six months, and Kaya, five.
