The event is being organised for May 7 - Bank Holiday Monday - by North Walsham Play to take place in the grounds of St Nicholas Church.

Councillor Robert Murphy devised the event - last held in 2015 - as a way of raising money for North Walsham Play and the St Nicholas East Window Appeal.

Matthew Smith, North Walsham Play director, said: 'The star attraction will be an animal encounter experience, allowing children and adults to get up close to many different animals including meerkats and reptiles.

'Whether it be live music or delicious hot food, bouncy castles or trying your hand at bell ringing - there will be something for everyone.'

The event will also feature a display of vehicles, vintage stocks, fundraising stalls, a balloon modeller and a face painter.

Mr Murphy said: 'We want to give families of North Walsham an excellent day that's affordable to all. It was also a main aim of mine to ensure any profits made from the event are given back to the town.'
