A post advertising an event in Norwich city centre has been called into question after the council insisted its venue is not hosting it.

A page on Facebook was set up this week advertising an Ibiza Orchestra Live concert in Chapelfield Gardens on October 1, an event which also has its own website.

The page is inviting people to register their interest in the event and submit details to be given updates on ticket sales.

However, Norwich City Council has thrown the event into question by insisting the park is not booked for this event.

A spokesman said on Thursday morning: "We have become aware, via social media posts and discussions with other agencies, that an event called Ibiza Orchestra Live is being promoted as taking place on October 1 at Chapelfield Gardens.

“This is incorrect, as the event’s organisers have not contacted us and we have a tentative booking at the park for the same date regardless."

The event's organisers have since said there has been a "miscommunication" with the council.

The council said on Thursday evening it is working with organisers to finalise details of the event, including the venue.

Organisers say it would be part of the Oktoberfest celebration due to happen at the gardens at that time.

The event page, which was set up on Tuesday this week, claims that the event will be an "epic spectacular".
