Interactive games are set to spark healthy eating and cancer awareness at family fun days.

Big C Cancer Charity, in collaboration with Freshly Greated arts organisation and local designer Matthew Harrison, is hosting a series of family fun days on April 6-7 in Great Yarmouth and Gorleston.

These events aim to raise awareness on the importance of healthy eating and understanding the signs and symptoms of cancer with interactive and educational games.

One of the features will involve squeezing through the Big C’s Big Bum, an inflatable structure offering people a chance to learn about the human body by taking a look inside the large bowel.

Additionally, the Great Yarmouth Breast Screening Service and Big C’s support team will be present to answer queries and provide information.

Designed by Matthew Harrison, creator of The Actual Reality Arcade, the game zone boasts classics like Pac Man, Whack a Mole, Lazer run and Space Invaders, all curated with a health-conscious spin.

In a bid to emphasise healthy eating, a smoothie bike will enable people to make their own fruit smoothies.

The fun days will be held in memory of Bob Adcock, a resident and shop keeper on the Cobholm Estate who passed away from cancer in 2023.

The events take place at St Mary Magdalene Church, Gorleston-on-Sea, on April 6 and Cobholm Primary Academy in Great Yarmouth on April 7, from 10am-2pm.
