ROLL up, roll up for all the fun of the Easter Fair in Great Yarmouth next week.
An extra day has been added to celebrate the town's King John Charter anniversary.
All the popular white-knuckle rides and more sedate attractions are back in the Market Place from Thursday to Sunday.
A key to the fair will be presented by Mayor of Great Yarmouth Paul Garrod to National Showmen's Guild president Jimmy Williams on Thursday at 6pm. Decorated in
22 carat gold, the porcelain key has been specially commissioned and crafted by Ernie Childs of Great Yarmouth Potteries.
The mayor is expected to take a spin on the rides after taking part in a civic parade from the Town Hall.
