A lunar-inspired spectacle full of music, dance and drama opened this year's Norfolk and Norwich Festival.
The intriguing Museum of the Moon landed at The Forum in Norwich this afternoon and the out-of-this-world landscape is forming the backdrop for an opening night of festivities.
Members of Norwich-based Total Ensemble Theatre Company have entertained the crowds with their show It's a Wonderful Moon, George!, a romance with a twist inspired by a scene from the film It's a Wonderful Life, and later tonight Norwich Cathedral Choir will perform a beautiful programme of choral music.
Also on the line-up tonight is jazz by Juliet Kelly and performance poetry by Sophia Walker.
The Museum of the Moon, which is at The Forum until May 21, has been created by artist Luke Jerram who has used imagery from NASA to create a scale replica of the moon.
