It's undoubtedly one of Norfolk's quirkiest summer attractions.
And this year's Teddy Bear Festival in the village of Great Ellingham, near Attleborough, is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before. Between July 2 and July 16 the village will be decked out with up to 100 teddy bears, each with their own theme.
Festival chairperson Heidi Halsall said the festival was getting more popular every year. She said: 'Children and teddy bears just go hand in hand, and people love going out and looking for them all.'
Events taking place during the festival include garage sales, a craft fair, a music night, mediumship evening and a 'TedFest' community festival on July 16 from 11am to 5pm at the Great Ellingham Recreation Centre.
Money raised through the festival will go to East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) and village groups.
