Norwich arts festival is granted late night licence

One of the biggest art festivals in the region has been granted a licence to go ahead later this year.

The Norfolk and Norwich Festival is expected to attract around 75,000 people to the city between 13 to 29 May.

And earlier today Norwich City Council's licencing committee gave the event the green light to go ahead.

The festival, which takes place in Chapelfield Gardens, applied for permission to play live music and films until 1am Monday to Thursday.

It also sought permission to stay open until 2am on Fridays and Saturdays, and until midnight on Sundays.
