A wide array of events are planned when the Aviva Tour of Britain passes through the Diss Express area for the longest and penultimate leg of the race.

The stage, covering 141 miles from Fakenham to Ipswich, will race through south Norfolk including Attleborough, Old Buckenham, Banham, Quidenham and East Harling.

In Attleborough, the town’s retail forum is hosting a unique bike trail, while the town council have organised a family fun day, which will run 9.30am to 6pm in Queen’s Square. There will be fun fair rides, wattbike racing, live music and more.

East Harling Church, East Harling Old School Hall, and East Harling Sports and Social Club have organised an event which will take place tomorrow, from 10am to 3pm, inviting people to get together as the race passes through the village.

Activities, raffles, games and much more will be on offer.

And in Old Buckenham, a family fun day will take place on the village green tomorrow. Celebrations begin at 11am, and run throughout the day and into the evening. Games, food and craft stalls will be in place on the green, while The Ox and Plough will be holding a beer festival with live music entertainment.

A village bike ride, meeting at The Ox and Plough at 10am, as well as a 20 mile trek from 9.30am, will also be held.
