Take a trip to infinity and beyond as Buzz Lightyear is among the characters coming to the Castle Quarter in Norwich this summer.

Everyone's favourite space ranger will be roaming the shopping centre on Saturday, June 25, from 12noon to 4pm.

The visit will celebrate the release of the sci-fi Pixar animation Lightyear, which hits cinemas on June 17 and tells the origin story of hero Buzz who inspired the toy.
