And now organisers are inviting people to get involved in the running of the October competition in a number of different ways.

Paint Out Norwich is developing a hosting programme and is looking for people to host some of the visiting artists taking part. There are also opportunities for volunteers to help with everything from stewarding to preparing the final exhibition, and businesses can also get involved via sponsorship, helping out with prizes, and a number of other ways.

The Paint Out Norwich 2017 events start on October 14, with the main competition days being October 15, 16 and 17, and the final exhibition at Norwich Cathedral's Hostry running until October 28.

For more information on how you can get involved, visit www.paintout.org or call Sarah Young on 07979 671392.
