A Norwich shopping centre is inviting shoppers to join in a work of art inspired by the Eastern Daily Press's Norfolk is... campaign, as part of a weekend of fun to celebrate its new look.

Intu Chapelfield's Summer Party this weekend will also feature live music and dance, family fun, food and drink and performances from talented youngsters.

Artist Mik Richardson will invite shoppers to contribute to a huge piece of collaborative canvas art, adding to his outline inspired by entries to the Norfolk is... campaign, which asks readers to explain what they love about our county.

The final artwork will be displayed within the shopping centre.

There will also be performances from band Agent Orange and vocal group Acafellas, with amateur acts who auditioned to perform including Wroxham's 13-year-old YouTube star Liberty Popey.
