From loaded fries to pizza, a street food event is launching in Norwich with a whole host of local vendors.

You will be able to get street food from a pitch outside The Holiday Inn Express in Drayton High Road from April 1.

It will run on Fridays from 4pm to 9pm and weekends 12pm to 8pm/9pm.

Then from late April it will also take place on Thursdays. 

It will begin with one vendor a night, which will grow to two or three if it proves successful, and this weekend is Elsie's Pizza (Friday), The Bucket List (Saturday) and The Yorky Shack (Sunday).
