intu Chapelfield teamed up with Norwich Mumbler to put on the event on Thursday, which saw the area transformed into a play zone.

A soft play area was installed, with craft activities held and retailers providing snacks and mini beauty treats. Norwich Mumbler - which has 5,000 active members a month - is a local parenting community, designed to provide information, recommendations, support and friendship.

Katrin Oldridge runs the community and said: 'When I had my children, I realised that I needed to rediscover Norwich to find out what the city has to offer parents of little ones... In my experience, meeting people in the same position as you, for friendship, advice and support, is so critical to surviving and enjoying parenthood.'
