The St Benedict Street venue's programme for July and August features an array of events spanning music, comedy and theatre.

Kelly Robb, Norwich Arts Centre's front of house and marketing manager, said: 'We have a packed summer programme of events that we're looking forward to hosting, from Edinburgh comedy previews to experimental new theatre to some fantastic international bands and local favourites. It's never quiet here and that's the way we love it.'

Among the music highlights, early risers are invited to join The Crack of Dawn Daybreak Disco with the Dawn DJs from the Miniscule of Sound this Sunday from 6am, meanwhile on July 18 Punjabtronix combines electronica with the sounds of Punjab for a taste of the East like no other.
