If your little ones love Transformers, or perhaps Star Wars is more their thing, or maybe the wee ones just love the Paw Patrols, you won't want to miss Truckfest East on August 18-20.

Or perhaps reality TV is your thing and you were addicted to ITV2's Love Island, joining us for the first time ever at Truckfest East will be the stars of TV's Love Island. Personalities Dom and Jess will be joined by winner Kem and the popular Chris as they take to the arena to meet and greet fans.

As well as hundreds of trucks and stunts from top stunt man Terry Grant and dare devil jumps and car crushing from Monster Truck Slingshot, we have lots more family fun happening throughout the weekend at Truckfest East at the Norfolk Showground, Costessey.

If you're a big fan of the Ice Road Truckers then why not come along to meet Todd Dewey and the lovely Lisa Kelly from the hit show, and you can get a photo taken and ask them why they drive across the ice in such dangerous conditions?
