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.
- 1 'Frustrated' father fined for accidentally overstaying in city car park
- 2 Plea to find next-of-kin after death of 48-year-old Norwich man
- 3 Bid for 4,000 homes could turn village near NDR into 'town'
- 4 Wall-to-wall fun: Former shop transformed into climbing centre
- 5 Appeal after men were injured when trying to stop fight
- 6 All the places you can fly to from Norwich this summer
- 7 Film exposes Norwich teen’s involvement in far-right group behind leaflets

"We've had to have a small price increase due to the cost of living going up.
"When we got petrol on Tuesday it cost double what it normally does."
The Easter Fun Fair is running until Monday, April 18, and is open daily from 12pm to 10pm.
The larger rides are about £2.50 per go and prices for smaller attractions vary.
There are vouchers available to give customers 50p to £1 off rides.
