A Norwich pub is celebrating the Canaries' promotion with an end of season party on Saturday.

Celebrations will start at the Queen of the Iceni pub at Riverside after the home game against Carlisle United.

The pub will be decorated in yellow and green balloons, as well as Norwich City banners and flags, and The Wolf Brewery, based in Attleborough, has also brewed a commemorative ale for the occasion. The beer, which is called We Are Going Up (3.7pc ABV), will be available exclusively at the pub on the day.

Alasdair Peat, pub manager at the Queen of the Iceni, said: “The pub is so close to Norwich's stadium and is a usual popular pre- and post-match haunt for Canaries' fans.

“We are keen to mark the team's excellent achievement with a party and hope that supporters will have a memorable day.”

There will also be a DJ playing in the pub from 4pm until closing at 1am.
