Preparations are underway for the return of a South Norfolk town carnival this summer.

The popular Wymondham carnival is set to make its comeback on July 26 after nearly two decades.

The event was a firm favourite in the social calendar and members of the Wymondham business group hope to restore it to its former glory.

Chairman David Disney, who runs Disney's Deli in Middleton Street, said: 'The carnival is a great opportunity for Wymondham to come together as a community and just enjoy a day of family fun.'

A procession, which will include the winner of the town's carnival queen competition, will start at 2pm from Back Lane and will make its way to the market square.

A stage set up near the town's market cross will host the 12 finalists from Wymondham's Got Talent.

The lucky winner will be presented with a £500 cheque.

Mr Disney added: 'The Wymondham business group is working really hard on improving the town. This is a good excuse to celebrate all that hard work.

'We hope everyone will support us and have a good time.'

Craft stalls and eateries including a hog roast, a stone oven for pizzas and a barbecue will line the town.

Donkey rides, ice-creams and buskers will add to the seaside atmosphere of the day.

Picture postcard advertising boards made by Wymondham High Academy students are also available for businesses to purchase.
