Final preparations are under way in Norwich for the launch this week of the City of Ale festival.

The event starts on Thursday with a party at Dragon Hall, in King Street, and will run until June 1.

In between, organisers are planning more than 200 events to celebrate the city's brewing heritage.

Forty four pubs are taking part, with 200 beers on offer from 39 local breweries.

The festival will this year also feature almost a third of a mile's worth of bunting.

Tomorrow's Evening News will have an eight page supplement dedicated to the festival, now in its fourth year.
