A giant 18-foot tall red lobster is to visit Norwich's Castle Mall as part of summer of fun at the shopping centre.

The world's biggest crustacean- Lobster A La Carte- will be visiting the centre on August 2 as part of an under the sea theme day to celebrate the release of new Pixar film 'Finding Dory'.

Children can get creative at a pop-up craft workshop to make clown fish, octopi, dories and other sea creatures. There will be a fishy trail to find hidden inflatable clown fish in shop windows.

It will be the first of four free events to be held in the White Lion square over the next couple of weeks.

There will be a circus theme on August 4 with two circus skills workshops and a big top craft workshop. On August 9 there will be a pirate theme with entertainment from Yorkshire's finest pirates Swash and Buckle. A free pirate craft and a treasure trail to find the hidden parrots in the shop windows will also be on offer.
