Lots of Events in Norwich this Weekend

There is a lot going on in Norwich this weekend.

For a start, there's the Lord Mayor's Street Procession on Saturday, setting off from Newmarket Road at 5pm.

The parade will weave its way up to St Stephens Street, Red Lion Street, Castle Meadow, Upper King Street, Tombland and finishes at Palace Street. There will be seating for the disabled at Castle Meadow opposite Opie Street.

There are more than 65 floats in the parade, and money collected will to towards local charity Leeway.

Norwich will be hosting events throughout the day from 12 noon at the Forum, and Fireworks at 10.30pm.

Sunday will see the Great Norwich Duck Race from Riverside at 2pm.

The forecast is looking good, so whilst you are in Norwich, stop off for a cooling drink or a bite to eat at The Ribs of Beef pub in Norwich (look out for their "secret" riverside terrace) or if you are looking for somewhere to eat in Norwich, The Maids Head Hotel is also right on your doorstep.

The Maids Head has just claimed the title the "oldest hotel in the UK" (as proclaimed this week by our very own Toastmaster and Deputy Town Cryer, Toastmaster Bob) and has just launched The Maids Head Ale. 

If you are looking for a family restaurant in Norwich with reasonably priced food, try Table Table restaurant near the station, or Yellows, near the Football ground. Both have free parking, are accessible from the station, and both are close to the start of the Duck Race.

The Maids Head and Ribs of Beef are both fairly central and are close to where the Lord Mayor's Procession will end on the Saturday.

If you are a visitor, and fancy staying the night, here is a selection of recommended Norwich hotels
