Families can start Christmas on a high at a new festive event with inflatables which is running just outside Norwich. 

Bounce into Christmas is taking place inside The Space in Roundtree Way in Sprowston from 9am until 7pm until Wednesday, December 22, with three-hour sessions organised to prevent crowding.

There are also two-hour quiet sessions each day from 9am until 11am.

The venue has been transformed into a winter wonderland and everything is included in the price - such as free parking - apart from food and drink.

There is a range of inflatables, including slides and assault courses, with 10 for children to play on.

The event has been organised by local promoter Adam Coulton, who is one of the directors of Nearly Festival and also ran Wensum Wonderland in Taverham last year.
