People encouraged to share memories of Norwich’s Lord Mayor’s Street Procession
People are being encouraged to share memories of Norwich's Lord Mayor's Street Procession and other Norfolk carnivals.
Norwich and Norfolk Community Arts (NORCA) and the UK Centre for Carnival Arts (UKCCA) have joined forces to create an online carnival archive.
The project, funded by a �642,500 award from Heritage Lottery Fund, is being launched in Norwich next Saturday when the carnival roadshow will visit the Forum between 10am and 4pm.
People are being asked to bring photos, films and other carnival memorabilia.
They can contribute to a virtual street procession and take part in a reminiscence cafe.
Norwich's Lord Mayor Jenny Lay will be sharing her memories of last year's Lord Mayor's Street Procession.
NORCA director Marcus Patteson, said: 'NORCA is delighted to be working with the UKCCA and other partners on this exciting and inspiring project.
