A public relations 'guru' who represented the likes of Michael Jackson and The Rolling Stones will be joined by a photographer who captured iconic images of bands such as Joy Division and The Stone Roses at a one-day international arts festival in Norwich.

The Cosmopolis festival at the University of East Anglia on Saturday will also see the launch of Think Something Different - a scheme to raise money for a student scholarship fund at the university.

With Norwich hoping to land the 2013 City of Culture title, the initiative aims to support the development of a new generation of artists, critics and scholars.

The Cosmopolis event will run from 10am to 8pm and will feature live music, a photographic exhibition and talks with influential figures.
