Visitors to Great Yarmouth seafront will enjoy a spectacular motorcycle stunt show.
The pulse-raising, daredevil performance is part of the town's Wheels festival on Saturday, July 6 and Sunday, July 7.
The two-day free-to-attend celebration of all things vehicular is organised by Great Yarmouth Borough Council with sponsorship from individual seafront businesses and the Greater Yarmouth Tourism and Business Improvement Area.
This year's festival is set to draw thousands of families and vehicle enthusiasts for an action-packed weekend, including monster truck rides, a wall of death, displays of classic and custom cars, large commercial vehicles and more.
And one attraction guaranteed to get visitors in a spin will be the On the Edge stunt show.
The display will see two highly experienced stunt riders, Brad Bullock and Dec Bullock, combine their skills to pull off some electrifying tricks.
The show includes 15ft jumps up vertical walls, drop-offs, and a range of freestyle stunts, some of which can only be attempted by a handful of riders in the world.
There will be four free-to-watch performances each day in the Jetty North car park.
Cllr Graham Plant, chairman of the economic development committee and deputy council leader, said: "The motorcycle stunt show promises to be a pulse-raising performance and we expect it to be a highlight of the festival, alongside the monster truck rides and the wall of death."
