This Saturday (August 18) a family fun-day based on Alice in Wonderland will be taking over Chapelfield Gardens.

Norwich-based events organisers Norwich in Wonderland specialise in putting on themed activities around the city. Earlier this year they helped celebrate the city centre with their curious takeover of Norwich market.

Now they're set to host a day of live music, professional dance performances, games and competitions in Chapelfield Gardens.

Organiser Rose Weaver said 'When I started planning events I wanted to create another world that people could forget themselves in - I immediately thought of Alice in Wonderland.'
