Norwich's only African and Caribbean market is returning to The Forum this September.

Spanning across September 3 and 4, the market promises two days to immerse yourself in African and Caribbean culture.

Both days will see market stalls fill the inside of The Forum offering a variety of unique products including jewellery, clothing, homewares, and gin.

Saturday will see the market expand, with a host of street food stalls opening up outside to sell food hailing from Nigeria, Jamaica, Egypt, and many others.

Local dancers and musicians are also set to take centre stage on the second day of the market.
