Audiences have been having a great time at this year's Norwich Sound and Vision, and director Adrian Cooke said he is delighted to see so many people enjoying the festival.

Now in its fifth year, the three-day music and media extravaganza has once again brought an array of established and emerging acts to the city and has also been presenting a packed conference programme provoking debate and discussion about the creative industries.

'It's been great so far. The beer festival has been busy, the gigs have been really busy and the conference has been really good and well attended,' Mr Cooke said.

'People are having fun and everyone seems to have a smile on their face.

'NS+V has got a really good feel about it this year.
