Lord Mayor's Celebration returns from Friday, July 5 to Sunday, July 7 and this year will be more colourful than ever with a paint party in Chapelfield Gardens from 7pm to 8.10pm to start the weekend in style.

On Saturday, there will be an exciting programme of events, including a 5km race from St Stephen's Road, starting at 4.45pm, followed by the lively Lord Mayor's Procession at 5pm.

This year's procession theme is 'love is all around you' and life-sized elephants puppets will lead the parade through Norwich.

The fun continues on Sunday with the return of the Norwich Lanes Summer Fayre, following a year hiatus, from 11am to 7pm and the return of The Great Norwich Duck Race from 12pm at Ludy Julian Bridge.
