Street graffiti will for once be permitted at a Norfolk town later this month as part of a series of arts events.

The Market Place in Thetford will be turned into a giant canvas on August 27 and 28 as part of a summer arts extravaganza organised by Keystone Development Trust.

The car park will be closed during the two-day free event, which will allow families to paint on the street between 11am and 3pm.

A children's arts club will also take place at the Abbey Neighbourhood Centre every Tuesday between 4pm and 5.30pm for five to nine-year-olds and 6pm to 7.30pm for 10 to 15-year-olds.

The Bollywood Brass Band will also be playing at the Carnegie Room on Saturday, September 29, as part of a year-long series of arts events funded by the Monument Trust.
