By day, it was an indoor market packed with handmade crafts, live music and the delicious aroma of wood-fired pizza and barbecued meat.

And when the sun went down, it was transformed into a three-course feast, with diners grabbing a spare seat to tuck into seasonal delicacies.

Hallows Jamboree, which ran over the weekend at the Dragon Hall in Norwich, attracted hundreds with its tempting menu and unique stalls.

Organised by Mark Matless of Bullitt Guerrilla Dining and James Hammond of the Proper Pizza Company, the duo hope to make the event a regular fixture based around seasonal produce.

And whether it was a chance to bask in Saturday's glorious sunshine or avoid the dreary rain of Sunday, food-lovers in Norwich flocked to the jamboree for the one-of-a-kind event.

Stalls selling jewellery, art, cards, prints and cooking oils made it a perfect chance to start the Christmas shopping early, with home-made cakes and hot chocolate on hand to give weary shoppers a boost.

Visitors were also treated to live performances from the He Hews on Saturday, and Bleaky and the Meerkatz on Sunday.

Mr Hammond added that the men already had a date in mind for their next event.

'We are thinking of a Valentine's Day event, and an alternative to the typical Valentine's Day. It was suggested to us over the weekend and we were already thinking about it, so that could be the next date to look out for.

'We just want to create an event where people have an experience, that they will remember and I think we definitely achieved that this weekend.'
