There was a real festival atmosphere on Thursday as the crowds gathered to watch the eclectic mix of performances and the audience were joined by fairies on stilts and bubbleologists blowing bubbles. Among the acts on stage were singers Finn Doherty, Olivia Crane and Jessie Stewart and dance groups Parallel and True Motion. Scott 'Scooby' Atkins, production manager at The Garage, said: 'There was a really nice atmosphere with lots of people enjoying all the talented acts from across Norfolk. We wanted it to be like a mini Glastonbury.'

Mr Atkins said the Wednesday programme for the Young Norfolk Arts and The Garage Stage unfortunately had to be cancelled because of the extreme wet weather, but the acts that had been due to perform then would be given the chance to perform at The Garage later in the year.
