Wild Paths will take place across Norwich from Friday October 18 to Sunday October 20 and will showcase a mix of emerging and established artists.

A buzz has been building in the city over the last few weeks with the festival logo appearing on the social media accounts of city businesses and local musicians.

The festival will take place at venues across the city, including the Waterfront and Norwich Arts Centre, which will also host a festival warm-up party on Thursday October 17.

It will also take inspiration from The Great Escape Festival in Brighton which takes place annually and showcases over 400 artists at 35 venues.

A spokesman for Wild Paths Festival said: 'The aim of vision for Wild Paths is to bring artists of national and international notoriety to Norwich and to shine a spotlight over the city and all the talent that resides here.
