The final of a Norfolk town’s virtual live talent show is set to take place this week.

Downham Market Town council is hosting its very own Downham Market’s Got Talent for residents of the town and the surrounding area on Friday, July 3.

The virtual event, which will take place via the town council’s Facebook from 6.30pm, was started to help lift spirits during lockdown and organisers have promised it will “be a night to remember.”
