More then 200 people have created a giant cartoon strip which has dressed the interior of an iconic city centre building.
An 80-yard-long cartoon strip is on display around the glass balcony on the first floor of the Forum from today until Monday.
It was based on the theme of protecting the oceans from plastic and was created by more than 200 people during the Norfolk Makers' Festival.
David Shenton, who worked as a cartoonist for newspapers, magazines and journals, said: 'I was asked what activity I could do at this year's festival and Norwich's longest cartoon strip was the first thing I thought of.
'It was terrific seeing how all the young people knew about the perils of pollution - even the youngest artists who took part!

'We were aiming for it to be as long as the front of City Hall, which is about 115 yards. We intended to unfurl it there at the end of the festival, but unfortunately the weather was too stormy.'
