A popular fair is back at a Norwich park after two years away - despite it costing them double to run the rides.

The Easter Fun Fair was opened on Wednesday in Chapelfield Gardens by organisers, the Showmen's Guild.

The fair was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

Jonathan Gray, chief steward of the Eastern Counties Section, said: "It's really lovely to be back.

"This is the start of our season and we haven't had a full one in two years.

"We've got some different rides but it's mostly as people know it, a really big fair.

"There are 10 large rides and lots of stuff for kids.
