A community group supporting fathers in their journey through parenthood is bringing a new event to Norwich.

Dadvengers was founded by CBeebies presenter Nigel Clarke at the start of the pandemic and aims to provide more advice and community support for dads.

The national organisation is bringing a ticketed family fun event and disco to Queen's Hills Community Centre in Costessey, alongside its weekly Sunday dad walk.

Dadvengers director, Mark Stevenson, who lives in Costessey, said: “Dadvengers is a successful and growing community-based organisation supporting dads on their parenting journey.

The group has run a series of events in Norwich in recent years, including at Eaton Park.

The family fun event in Costessey is planned for Sunday, January 21 between 10am and midday.

It is being run in association with creativity organisation 64 Million Artists, which is running a January Challenge encouraging folk to explore their creativity through 31 prompts for every day of this month.
