Visitors to Norwich were invited to step into a giant piece of 3D artwork outside one of the city's most iconic buildings as part of the launch of this yea's Big Lunch event.

Renowned artist Kurt Wenner was responsible for creating the 3D masterpiece which was outside the Forum building yesterday.

The 5metre by 5metre installation took a total of four hours to create and saw giant sandwiches, fruit, cakes, burgers, buns and cups of tea breaking free from a Big Lunch table and 'floating up' into the hands of the surrounding Big Lunchers.

Mr Wenner said: 'The scene I have created is vibrant, colourful and joyous, born from people of all walks of life coming together and enjoying the unique community and friendship feel of many Big Lunch events.'
