A celebration of the Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead, will take place in Norwich this November.

Hosted by Day of the Dead UK Tour, the event is to be held at OPEN on Friday, November 10.

Kicking off at 9.30pm the festivities will include Europe's largest confetti cannons, skull face painting, live percussionist performances, piñatas and acrobats.

Day of the Dead, also known as Dia de Muetos, traditionally involves gatherings to remember loved ones who have died and help support their spiritual journey. The occasion is also observed through festivals and parades.

Organisers said: 'In the last few years, Day of the Dead has exploded in popularity and this year we've decided to go massive. Think carnival atmosphere, candy skulls all over the place, and real Latin American flair!'

Tickets for the event are on sale now, priced at £17.90.
