Organised by Sarah Yendell, a zumba instructor, Sharon Grimwood, Charlie Brown and Sherie Brown, the event was held to raise money for charity Sport Relief.

The conga started and ended at Chapelfield Gardens and the members who took part danced their way through Norwich in single file dressed in colourful tutus.

The route took them past the Assembly House, up St Stephens Street, past the bus station and on to John Lewis.

From there they headed to the Bell Hotel, along St Stephens Street again before passing Jarrolds and making their way to The Forum.
