Sprowston families enchanted by Royal Wedding

People of all ages came together to watch the Royal Wedding unfold on two big screens in a Sprowston Church.

Two viewing rooms with giant projectors were set up for the free community Royal Wedding Party held at Wroxham Road Methodist Church in Sprowston from 9.30am.

There was a room for adults only and a family room with craft tables for the children to entertain themselves while Prince William and Catherine Middleton tied the knot at Westminster Abbey.

The event, which also featured a fancy dress competition for the children and a bring and share party tea party at 2pm, was heralded a success by organiser Vici Bailey.

She said: 'It went really, really well. There was quite a lot going on, but it was just nice, because it was the only thing going on in our area. There was a really good mix of families and adults who had come a long to watch it with other people.

'We had a quiet room for adults and in the family room we had craft tables set up so the parents were able to watch over the children who were busy doing things.

'We thought we wouldn't have enough crafts to keep the children going but a lot of them just sat there and were absolutely enchanted by it (the wedding) which was nice. '
