Children are inspired by Norfolk and Norwich festival events

Young Norfolk and Norwich Festival goers have had a chance to create some of their own work as they toured visual arts venues across Norwich.

Among the shows they visited on the their day out at the festival were the birdboxes created by London Fieldworks and Simon Granger's paintings at Outpost.

The visuals arts days have been set up by the creative learning team for Key Stage Two students. As well as going to see work, they are also given the materials to create their own festival-inspired works.

The idea of organising a Day Out at the Festival came from a teacher focus group who worked with the festival.

It is hoped that children, who would otherwise miss out, will have access to festival shows and meets artists during school hours.

'The idea is to come up with a full day itinerary where they do more than just come and see a show.

'They can meet the artists and get involved with the festival in some way,' she said.
