People invited to savour a feast of free entertainment at Chapelfield Gardens in Norwich

People are being invited to tuck into a feast of free entertainment in a Norwich park tomorrow.

Following on from the success of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival's Garden Party earlier this month, the closing day of the festival will once again see Chapelfield Gardens become a theatrical playground of free entertainment.

From 11am until 5pm there will be an array of weird and wonderful acts entertaining people at the Festival Feast – and people are being encouraged to bring along a picnic and join in with the fun.

Nicky Barrell, press and PR manager for the festival, said: 'The Festival Feast is a fantastic opportunity for families to come along and soak up the festival atmosphere while enjoying a picnic in Chapelfield Gardens.

'We hope the Festival Feast will be the biggest picnic the city has ever seen!'

Among the entertainment, prehistoric baby dinosaurs from Erth's Dinosaur Petting Zoo will be making special walkabout appearances, Ragroof Theatre will be putting on a Make Do And Mend show full of dancing, and the Insect Circus Museum will be there with dancing snails and balancing bugs. Music from life's twisting and treacherous path will be performed by Rimski's Bicycle Piano, while canine brass group the Hounds of the Buskerville will be sniffing about for tasty snacks while encouraging festival-goers to start dancing in the park.
