Giant bubbles on the water for Midsummer Chillax

Midsummer's night is traditionally a time for folklore, mystery and intrigue, and this weekend families will be wowed by an unusual dream scene at a Norfolk broad.

Whitlingham Broad, at Trowse, on the outskirts of Norwich, might be renowned for its natural beauty and wildlife but it will be two man made wonders that grip the imagination this Saturday evening.

Two giant musical spheres, one containing a flautist and the other an aerial dancer, will float with a swan-like majesty across the water.

It is set to be one of the highlights of the Midsummer Chillax - an event organised by South Norfolk Council as part of its festival programme - which starts at 6pm at Whitlingham Country Park.

The evening will also include a walk-through inflatable colourdome, and sculptures on the beach at Little Broad made from 80 tonnes of imported sand.

There will be music from Transept and Rory McVicar, both on the Arts Council programme for promising bands.
