From a TV presenter visit and display flights across beautiful blue skies, to a day at the races - there’s something for everyone to enjoy this sunny weekend.

Yesterday saw some warm sunshine, but the mercury is likely to rise today (Saturday June 1) and tomorrow.

Adam Dury, a forecaster at Norwich-based Weatherquest, said: "The temperature is set to rise a bit again on Saturday with plenty of sunshine and temperatures of around 25C.

"On Sunday, it may be a bit more humid and muggy, and we should see highs of around 26C to 27C."

These temperatures mean that some parts of Norfolk could well be hotter than Ibiza this weekend, with the BBC predicting highs of 24C for the party island today and tomorrow.

With so many events planned across the region, organisers are hoping for bumper crowds.

Here are some things to see and do:
