Excited children went along to a fun day in Ipswich featuring superheroes, princesses and more.

Star Wars characters, including Darth Vader, also took part in the event.

Ipswich couple Danni and Steve Diamond organised the free event at Westgate Ward Social Club in Victoria Street on Sunday, which was intended as a party for children who couldn't celebrate their birthdays properly because of Covid.

It also marked the launch of the couple's new business, Enchanted Entertainment Events UK. The day was described as "a Very Merry Un-Birthday Celebration" and included entertainment, food and drink.

Mr Diamond said: "It went really well. The children had a great time and really enjoyed it."

Some youngsters even came along dressed up to join in the fun.

Mr Diamond said they might be doing another event at the social club in the future because this one went so well.
