Tales and stories enthralled festival-goers as Dragon Hall, the home of Writers' Centre Norwich, was transformed into The Story Machine.
Powered by literature and oiled by theatre, the immersive literary event took place at the medieval merchant's hall in King Street on Sunday, as part of the festival's City of Literature programme led by Writers' Centre Norwich.
Festival-goers were greeted by stories and installations at every turn – including in hallways, cellars and gardens, and even in a writer's parked car.
There was live literature from Jon McGregor, Kevin Barry, Sarah Hall and Anna Metcalfe alongside work from writers including Claudia Rankine, Etgar Keret, Katherine Mansfield, Kirsty Logan and Mikhail Zoschenko.
Alice Kent, director of communications at Writers' Centre Norwich, said: 'People really enjoyed it and thought it was a different way of doing a literature event.'
