A bikini dip and the chance to practise archery skills are just some of the events which have been added to the list for Sheringham carnival this year.

One of the latest confirmed additions for the event, which takes place from August 1 to August 8, is the Ancient Armouries Longbow Experience, where people can try their hand at shooting in a safety range with targets, medieval tents, flags and shields. There will also be a display of English and French arms and armour.

People are also being encouraged to take part in carnival bikini dip - men included - dressed in bikinis to take a swim in the sea.

The selection for the Sheringham carnival queen is taking place on Tuesday, May 4, at The Crown in Sheringham at 7.30pm.

Entrants must live within three miles of St Peter's Church, Sheringham, and be at least 16 years old by May 1. The queen and her attendants must also be available for carnival duties from July 30 to August 8 inclusive, and Cromer Carnival Parade on August 18.

Entry forms are available on the evening or from The Crown Inn in the town and Sheringham Little Theatre.
