The Bureau Detours company has set up the Dennis Design Center in the city park, and throughout this week everyone is invited to join in the fun.

Based in Denmark and Norway, the company has previously created unique installations with the help of local people in places across Europe.

When asked what they planned to create in Norwich, Bureau Detours artist Alexander Muchenberger said: 'We are making a billboard factory and we will be taking the billboards out around the city.

'Just come and say hi and find out about the project.'
