A fundraising festival will see more than 20 gardens in Thorpe Hamlet, Norwich opened up to the public later this month.

The Thorpe Hamlet Midsummer Garden Festival is being organised by St Matthew's Church at the top of Gas Hill in the city.

A share of proceeds from the festival, which will take place on Saturday, June 19 and Sunday, June 20, will go to Pabulum - Age Concern Norfolk's project supporting elderly people with dementia.

Pabulum uses reminiscence-based activities, including singing and musical groups, to stimulate the long-term memories of people affected by dementia.
