Businesses joined forces to promote Norwich, boost community resilience and get people talking again as coronavirus restrictions ease.
The Norwich Together Alliance event, featuring Konectbus and KindaKafe, was aimed at getting people speaking about what they thought about the city face-to-face rather than virtually.
Tracey Drake, development lead for Norwich-Business in the Community, which helped form the alliance about 18 months ago, said: "We are looking at creating positivity in the community and becoming more resilient which will help the city become more sustainable. We are very lucky in Norwich.
"People were talking and smiling. The laughter was priceless."
The Konectbus Chatty Bus, which encourages people to talk more and was launched just before the lockdown, was also at the event.
Marketing manager Davina Tanner said: "We anticipate buses to get busier from May 17."
