Lucy Farrant, Young Norfolk Arts Festival coordinator, said: 'We need young people who are enthusiastic, committed, and interested in the arts, and who want to make the most of this wonderful opportunity from the EDP.'

Young people will be given the chance to take on the roles of reporters, page designers, photographers, digital specialists and sales specialists, and they will be given training by EDP staff. They will attend weekly sessions at the EDP's Norwich head office and put together two supplements which will be published in the EDP.

The first edition will report on what will be happening in this year's festival and be published on Tuesday, March 24.

Then throughout the festival the team will attend a wide variety of events and their reports and photos will be included in a second edition of the Young Norfolk Daily Press which will be published on Tuesday, July 7.
