Up and coming performers and well-established artists shared the stage at a festival celebrating local talent in Norwich.
Norwich Sound and Vision returned to the city for its seventh year this weekend, with a busy line-up of events, discussions and performances spanning from Thursday afternoon until Saturday night.
An array of more than 50 musicians appeared at venues dotted all over the city, from the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library and Norwich Arts Centre to pubs including The Murderers and the Playhouse.
Running alongside was a series of conferences and debates which put a spotlight on working in music, radio, TV, film and multi-media industries.
It came to a close on Saturday night with a performance from headliners Let's Eat Grandma.
