Prepare to be transported to infinity and beyond as a Toy Story party is coming to the city.

Join Woody, Buzz and the gang for a Toy Story-themed event at Castle Mall Shopping centre in Norwich as part of UK-wide annual charity fundraiser One Great Day.

The event, which takes place on Saturday, June 29 from 10am to 5pm, gives fan of the franchise the chance to meet-and-greet Woody and his best friends Buzz Lightyear and Jessie.

There will be Toy Soldier bowling, a Pin The Face On Mr Potato Head competition and a chance to have a go on The Claw, which featured in the first film at Pizza Planet, with donations required to take part in activities.

There will also be a Hamm money box, face painting, a photo competition and lots of prizes to be won throughout the day.

As part of the One Great Day fundraising activities in Norwich, the team at Castle Mall will also be walking 115 miles around the shopping centre on June 29, the equivalent of walking from Great Ormond Street Hospital in London to Norwich.

"Along with Great Ormond Street Hospital, we will be raising money for Finnbar's Force, a local charity which provides support and reduces suffering for children and their families who receive the devastating diagnosis of a brain tumour.
