Young people are needed to help spread the word about this year's Young Norfolk Arts Festival.
The annual arts extravaganza is returning in July and organisers are looking for volunteers to join the Young Norfolk Communications and Events Team. Anyone aged 16 to 21 with an interest in the arts can apply, and members of the team will have the opportunity to do everything from writing news stories to working on social media campaigns to making films about festival events. The team will also be involved in creating the Young Norfolk Arts float for this year's Lord Mayor's Street Procession through Norwich.
Young Norfolk Arts producer Lucy Farrant said: 'The key qualities we are looking for are enthusiasm and a love of the arts and creativity in general. We are not looking for a specific set of skills, but we are looking for people who are energetic, interested, and are good at working on their own initiative.'
The main part of the festival will run from July 1 to 10, and the events and communications team will also be given training ahead of this.
The full festival programme will be announced within the next month, and Mrs Farrant said: 'There are lots of things to look forward to which is very exciting. We will be at the Royal Norfolk Show just before the main festival starts and the Lord Mayor's Celebration is on the first weekend of the festival. There will also be lots of festival events throughout the whole week including a band night at UEA LCR.'
