Norwich and King's Lynn will be awash with bubbles again this year as East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) has confirmed it is bringing back the exciting fundraiser that saw almost 3,000 people in Norfolk get covered in coloured foam last year.

Bubble Rush is a 5k fun run with a difference as participants head off amongst a sea of bubbles, before passing four bubble stations where cannons pump out foam to create a four-foot (1.2-metre) deep bubble bath!

Last year's events were the first of their kind in Norfolk and, such was the furore to get involved, they raised in the region of £70,000.

In 2019, EACH will host a Bubble Rush on Saturday, 18 May at Eaton Park, Norwich. That will be followed by one on Sunday, 16 June at The Walks, King's Lynn. At both, runners will go off in two waves at 11am and noon.

Emma Benstead, EACH Norfolk Events Fundraiser, said: "We're thrilled to be running these two events again after such a brilliant response when we staged them for the first time last year.

"As anyone who went will know, the runs are a spectacular sight and great fun for all involved. There's no race element, meaning participants are free to run, jog, walk, dance or toddle through the foam. It's a completely natural and safe mixture."

Alongside the courses will be lots of merchandise, catering and other amusements, making it a proper family day out.

Emma added: "Tickets for the Bubble Rush events this year will be sold in three stages, so the earlier you book the cheaper it is! Registration fees help cover the costs of your participation, so we'd like everyone to raise as much money as possible.

"All money raised from the Norwich Bubble Rush will go towards the nook appeal, our campaign to raise £10 million and build a new hospice in Framingham Earl, transforming children's palliative care for Norfolk. Whilst that appeal's ongoing, we still need to raise money to continue providing care and support at our existing Norfolk hospice in Quidenham. Money raised from the King's Lynn Bubble Rush will go towards this.

"Come along and soak up the colourful atmosphere!"

The Norwich Bubble Rush is being sponsored by Bateman Groundworks and also supported by Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure and One Broker. The King's Lynn one is being sponsored by Vancouver Quarter, with additional support from Bespak, Alive Leisure, Chalcroft Construction and the solicitors Kenneth Bush.
