The seventh annual Norwich Film Festival will open with a bang as Monty Python star Michael Palin visits for a discussion about his work.
Running throughout November, the festival aims to deliver inspiring events and champion new methods of storytelling.
74-year-old Palin will be speaking at OPEN on Thursday, November 9 following a screening of his classic film, A Private Function.
The on-stage interview will be lead by Guardian film critic, Peter Bradshaw.
Mr Palin said: 'It's always good to come up to East Anglia. My father and grandfather were both Norfolk men and for them Norwich was the centre of the world.

'I'm sure they would have appreciated how much of Monty Python was filmed in and around the city. And Private Function is, of course a quintessential portrait of Yorkshire, where I grew up.'
Early bird tickets for the talk cost £12.50 and can be purchased from norwichfilmfestival.co.uk
