The mythical creature was brought to the Cornhill thanks to the Grand Theatre of Lemmings which are based in Manningtree. Children meeting the friendly unicorn were encouraged to throw magic dust and make a wish.

Mum, Rebecca Enebe, from Felixstowe said her daughters had been “excited about meeting the unicorn all weekend”.

Stephanie Harding from Ipswich, said her four-year-old daughter Grace thought the event was “magical”.

The arrival of the unicorn was arranged by Ipswich Central who are keen to arrange more events on the Cornhill.
