Festival Continues With Lord Mayor's Procession
Tens-of-thousands of people are expected to descend upon Norwich this weekend as the city’s five-day summer festival continues.
Today sees the start of the Lord Mayor’s Celebration with a family-fun packed program of activities taking place.
This year the celebrations will coincide with the London Olympics and the Olympic torch passing through Norwich.
The festival is set to be a ‘wonderful and intoxicating’ celebration.
As well as the anticipated Lord Mayor’s procession and the classic firework display tonight, many other events and activities are expected across Norwich.
A carnival, daredevil street artists and music events are set to take place. As well as a swimming race down the River Wensum, a fun fair and even a duck race.
Helen Selleck, Culture and Events Manager at Norwich City Council, said: “Having the celebrations coincide with the Lord Mayor’s procession is very exciting:
“There is going to be a lot of sport activities across Norwich which is going to be fun – really fun.
“We are very lucky in the city that the council continues to support these kind of activities. They believe it is really important that people have the opportunity to get together in their communities, to celebrate and feel proud about their city. “
Many roads through Norwich will be closed this afternoon and this evening.
The precession will travel from Newmarket Road along St. Stephens Street to Palace Street.
Two fairground workers have pleaded not guilty to charges they face over the death of a school girl on a bouncy castle in Essex.
A man charged with the murder of an elderly dog walker in Norfolk has been remanded in custody ahead of a trial next year.
