One of the UK's leading carnival experts is to share his experience with groups wanting to take part in the Lord Mayor's Procession.

Norwich City Council is calling for as many organisations as possible to join this year's parade, which takes place in July.

And those still needing inspiration for a float will have the chance to hear from the experts at a special event in April.

Pax Nindi, CEO of the Global Carnival Centre, will be attending the free Carnival Inspiration Day in Norwich to share his expertise.

During the day there will be presentations and talks on everything from costume to float design.

Helen Selleck, the council's culture and events manager, said: 'Every year, it's the community that brings our procession to life with carnival spirit. Groups of any size are welcome to join in – it doesn't have to be complicated, the most important thing is to enjoy yourself.

'The carnival inspiration day promises to be fun, informative and exciting so we hope to see lots of people there and give them ideas to make 2016 the best year yet.'
