Christmas will come early in Norwich this weekend at a three-day festive shopping extravaganza.

The Norfolk Christmas Gift Show is the largest ever indoor shopping event to be staged in the county and offers people the chance to buy all their presents, decorations and food and drink under one roof.

More than 250 exhibitors have signed up to the show at the Norfolk Showground and there will also be entertainment for children, including a Santa's grotto, face painting and an old-fashioned Christmas funfair.

As well as the more traditional Christmas gifts, the show also offers more unusual and unique products, as well as gourmet food and wine.

Stalls include traditional wooden toys and hand-crafted rocking horses, tableware and cookware, African crafts, Australian gifts, paintings, jewellery and autographed memorabilia.
