The city has certainly made up for Halloween being missed last year.

After being unable to take part in 2020 city folk came out in their droves to show off their costumes and get hauls of sweets.

Ashleigh Reynolds, who lives in Norwich, said: "I did notice that there was a lot more people out this year."

Her sons Archie and Leon very much enjoyed getting dressed up in Halloween clothes and acting creepy. 

Jourdan Madge from Queens Hills took her daughter Belle out in the area dressed as a witch.

She said: "This year was really good. Queens Hills always goes big for Halloween but it was really nice to see loads of kids and their parents out and about.

"However it was busier with people who are not from the area, which means houses ran out of sweets faster leaving us with less houses to visit - but we had a great time regardless."

City kids get extra treat thanks to entertainer's fire show in Hellesdon

Zeb Prescott, 42, is an entertainer who specialised in fire and stilt walking and has been doing it for 12 years.  

He said: “Both me and my wife do it and thought it would be fun to put on a show this year as so many children had to miss out last year.” 

Zeb’s fire skills include fire breathing, fire poi, fire bubbles, body burning and fire eating.  

“I love showing off for my daughter, so that helped us to decide to do the show for trick or treaters,” said Zeb.  

He added: “We gave out so many more sweets that usual because word got around about the show, we even had to go out and get more at one point in the night. 

“But it was worth it, kids are in awe of the fire so they are a much better audience than adults in clubs.”
