A cabaret-themed showcase celebrating young Norfolk performers is planned for this year's Young Norfolk Arts Festival.

Following a fantastic run in last year's festival, city arts venue The Garage is returning to the YNAF stage with a cabaret-themed spectacle that programme and participation manager Carrie Mansfield has said will be 'vibrant, visual and fun.'

The event will bring together dance troops of varying styles as well as talented musicians and singers.

The hour-long production will feature more than 50 of Norfolk's best performers. The pieces will range from ballet to street dance and will be brought to life with vibrant costumes befitting this year's theme.

Carrie said: 'This year's festival is a really good platform and a lovely way of celebrating young people and the arts.'

Four dance groups from The Garage are involved in this event and are looking for young people to get involved in their performances.
