Norwich streets to be invaded by mythical beasts for the start of Norfolk and Norwich Festival
Huge mythical beasts are to invade the city's streets to kick off the Norfolk and Norwich festival in May.
Invasion, a UK premiere by Close Act, will open the festival on Friday, May 11 at 9.30pm.
It is described as a highly-exciting street spectacle in which a mythical world comes alive.
Prehistoric animals move through the audience, large birds fly overhead, and animal voices sound from every direction.
Chaos could ensue but for the power of a magical song...
