It was the seventh time the council has staged a day of family entertainment and this year there were more than 100 stalls, attractions and activities.

On the main stage crowds were entertained by performances from The Children’s Ukulele Bband, zumba with Rachel Evans and her team, Bollywood Sparkle, music from MODE, the Move Me dance class, martial arts from Kuk Sool Wan and the Norfolk and Suffolk Rock Choir.

Council cabinet member Clayton Hudson said: “What a fantastic day. This was without doubt the busiest South Norfolk On Show yet.

“It was wonderful to see so many people having such a great time while at the same time finding out just how much the council does.

“Everywhere you looked there were crowds of people enjoying themselves. It was standing room only at the main stage, where we were entertained by really talented local people.

“Attracting such a large crowd was brilliant for all the local businesses, charities and entertainers who took part. South Norfolk has so much to offer and the show is a fantastic opportunity to showcase everything that makes it such a great place to live, work and visit. A great day matched by some amazing weather.”

Other main stage entertainment at the show, held at the council offices at Long Stratton, included Body Percussion and music by pupils of St Mary’s primary school.
