Photo gallery of afternoon events at Lord Mayor’s celebrations in Norwich

Big crowds have been enjoying the eclectic mix of great entertainment on The Forum Stage for the Lord Mayor's Celebrations today.

People young and old have been gathering to watch a huge range of acts on the stage outside The Forum in Millennium Plain.

Performances so far have included street dancing from the Slanted Dance group whose performers range from aged four to adults, ventriloquist Steve Hewlett, opera singer Ben Lake, and modern Indian dancing with Bollywood Sparkles.

A short spell of wet weather temporarily halted the performances in the early afternoon before the sun came back out and the festivities continued.

Event coordinator Clare Hubrey said: 'The event has been going really well and we have had big crowds - and there are lots more acts to come!'
