In the show, the audience wear headphones and it tells the epic story of a discovery of cave paintings from 40,000 years ago in Indonesia. 

It is currently playing at the New Diorama Theatre in London, where it made its debut, and has received rave reviews.

The Botanical Garden Bar is back in Norwich by popular demand, with Norfolk food and drink on the menu.

Jack Lowe, artistic director, said: "People can have a really nice time in the garden and then come up to the theatre.

"Bringing those things together is an important step for us in terms of getting people to know about us in a relaxed way."
