A festival in the city centre which aims to break the chain of violence against women and girls will take place on Valentine's day.
Now in its eighth year Norwich Rising will be held outside the Forum on Millennium Plain in Norwich from 1-2pm on Friday February, 14.
The event is part of the global One Billion Rising campaign, the figure of which refers to a UN statistic that one in three women will be raped or beaten in her lifetime.
Eloise O'Hare, co-ordinator, said: "We know that Norwich Rising makes a difference. Survivors tell us their trauma is transformed by dancing outside with hundreds of people of all ages and abilities, taking back control of their bodies and using their energy to change the world and make it a safer place."
