The Lord Mayor's celebrations kicked-off in style tonight with some of the region's finest young musical talent performing in the grounds near Norwich Castle.

Dozens of music fans took a seat at the outdoor stage of the Whiffler Theatre for an evening of acoustic music.

The chilled out sounds of four young acts was the perfect antidote on a warm and muggy evening in the city, which officially kicked off the Lord Mayor's celebrations for 2013.

The free music event, Somewhereto_ Jam Unplugged, featured performances from local performers Kayleigh Watson, from Wymondham, Montagues and Capulets, from Norwich, Alison Mackinnon, from Norwich, and Fran Davey, from Felixstowe.

All of the acts received a warm reception from an appreciative crowd.

The event was supported by Creative Arts East and Norwich City Council as part of the Somewhereto_ project, a service aimed at matching young people aged 16 to 25 with the space they need for sport, culture, arts and enterprise.

Somewhereto_ was funded by a £7m grant from the Big Lottery Fund in December to support its UK-wide expansion over the following four years.
