The trio of characters from Shrek: The Musical took a break from their week-long run of shows to see how Norwich Castle compares to its fairytale counterparts.

They trio, including Papa bear, played by King’s Lynn actor Kevin Yates, also enjoyed a spot of window shopping in Castle Mall, met the Wonderland GoGoHare and popped into Muffin Break to sample its porridge.

They also visited the mall’s football parlour and ping pong area before heading to Charisma beauty parlour to have their fur spruced up read for the evening’s performance.

The upbeat fairytale is showing at Norwich Theatre Royal until Sunday, July 8 and tickets are available from the box office on 01603 630000.
