The top prizes are an £1,000 intu Chapelfield gift card, a two-night stay in a deluxe room with breakfast at the Norfolk Mead Hotel in Coltishall and a one-night stay in an executive suite at the Park Farm Hotel in Hethersett with breakfast and access to leisure and spa facilities.

The event has been organised by VisitNorwich and Norwich Business Improvement District (BID), which was established in November 2012 to help the city thrive and to support local businesses.

Stefan Gurney, executive director at Norwich BID, said: "The inspiration for Norwich Big Weekend is to showcase to residents the breadth and quality of things to do, eat and see across Norwich and the rest of the county, so in turn they can share their experiences with others.

"It's wonderful to be able to offer free tickets to over 1000 local people and we trust the winners will take something positive away from their days and evenings out and build some delightful memories."
