A Norfolk town is planning a right royal knees-up for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Over the bank holiday weekend on Sunday, June 5, Jubilee Fest will take place in Kett's Park in Wymondham from 2pm to 6pm organised by the volunteer-led Wymondham Town Team. 

There will be free entry and entertainment from the likes of five-piece band The Walks and Mark the Busker.

There will also be a range of food and drink stalls, a funfair and traditional games, such as tug of war and egg and spoon races.

The Queen will be heading to Sandringham next month. Picture: Chris Bishop
