A pub and live music venue near Norwich celebrated the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in style - with a big garden party.
The Brickmakers, in Sprowston Road, teamed up with the organisers behind the Nearly Festival to host the Great British Garden Party on Friday.
And the public arrived in droves to watch tribute acts perform, alongside other local live acts and a DJ, in tribute to the Queen's 70 years on the throne.
Faye Brown, a teaching assistant from Old Catton, said: "I'm here with my daughter and we're loving the jubilee festivities.
"It's a wonderful atmosphere and we're enjoying the live music.
"We like to celebrate events like this for the Queen and it's a great excuse to come out for the day."
