A popular beer festival that raises money for young people is set to return this autumn.
Oktoberfest will be held at OPEN Norwich from October 11 to 13 with an anticipated audience of 3,000.
Bavarian Oompah band the Bavarian Strollers and Norfolk band NightTrain have confirmed their return.
Last year, the venue was transformed into a Bierkeller over four sold-out sessions, raising £10,000.
All the profits generated by such events enable OPEN's youth charity to offer free access to its new gym facility for young people.

One person who accessed the OPEN Gym is Tom Hitchcock-Wyatt, who came to the charity in 2017 following his struggles with confidence and anxiety.
Tom's aspirations to powerlift for Team GB are looking much closer thanks to free gym access.
