Organised by Carway-Roe Events, the foodie experience will be held at Norwich Playhouse on St George's Street from 1pm to 10pm on Saturday, August 12.

Visitors can try a range of dishes, including Greek flatbread pizzas, with toppings such as lamb kefta, bell peppers, artichoke hearts, feta and cherry tomatoes, as well as grilled and marinated chicken gyro pitta with tzatiziki, red pepper and melizanosalata and sweet potato fries with feta and harissa.

Connor Carway-Roe of Carway-Roe events, said: 'This is the first pop-up event we are staging, we usually do weddings and parties, but it's exciting to be trying something new.

'We chose Greek food because we feel it's different and seasonal. Street food is one of the many types of food we love, but it can be hard to get your hands on something that doesn't focus on meat, so for this event we'll be offering as many veggie options as possible.'
