City streets are set to be illuminated as Cancer Research brings a Shine Night Walk to Norwich for the first time. 

Norfolk's county town is one of 18 locations across the UK to be selected for the fundraising initiative in 2021. 

Shine Night Walks see participants form a procession of light and take on a 10km trek in support of the charity's research.

The Norwich edition will take place on Saturday, September 4, starting from Chapelfield Gardens at 7.50pm.

Along the way, fundraisers will pass landmarks including The Forum, Norwich Castle, Carrow Road and Norwich Cathedral.

People can set off alone or in small, socially-distanced groups. 

Michael Jarvis, Cancer Research UK's spokesman for Norfolk, said: "We’re delighted to bring the Shine Night Walk to Norwich for the first time.

“One in two of us will get cancer in our lifetime. But all of us can support the research that will beat it.
