The Very Rev Jane Hedges, Dean of Norwich Cathedral, said: “We’ve heard from poets, singers, guitarists, a harpist, a flutist, choirs and bands. This buzz will be echoed in communities all over Norfolk as we celebrate the beauty of our natural environment, history and heritage, and above all the wonderful people of this county.”
