Shoppers in Norwich were surprised by a flashmob dance outside the Forum.
The mob is part of a group called Norwich Rising, which is part of the global One Million Rising campaign.
The campaign aims to raise awareness for victims who have suffered from harassment and violence, while also raising money for domestic abuse charity Leeway.
For the seventh year in a row the festival used dance, music and poetry to attract spectators around the city centre.
Norwich Rising was joined by Sewell Park Academy who showed its support for the movement.
