A Moulin Rouge-inspired flashmob is set to pop up in Norwich ahead of this year's Young Norfolk Arts Festival - and more people are being encouraged to take part.

It is the idea of one of the performers in last year's inaugural YNAF, Norwich School pupil Caitlin Fairweather, who came up with the plan to help promote this year's festival.

Caitlin enjoyed being part of the festival last year so much so she aims to get more people involved by arranging an ambitious public display.

The flashmob is planned to take place outside the Forum in late April, however, the date remains a secret to preserve the element of surprise.

The song El Tango de Roxanne from the notorious film Moulin Rouge, will be performed by the flashmobbers, who will also be dancing.

As it stands, the flashmob, which is essentially a large group of people performing a seemingly spontaneous display of song and dance, includes more than 20 people and Caitlin is keen for more to get involved.

Rehearsals are due to take place within the next month and young people from Norfolk are welcome to join.
