Around 200 visitors flocked to Tower Gardens for the fourth Greyfriars Art Space Festival to enjoy an afternoon of live music, poetry and art.

Sunday’s event saw the Lynn park transformed by a selection of artworks posted on the railings, a range of artists and craft stalls, plus challenges to keep budding artists busy.

Run by co-ordinators Kathy Cossins and Vicky Hussain, Greyfriars Art Space provides a gallery space for local artwork with the festival featuring a mixed media annual exhibition by members.

Kathy said: “It was a really good afternoon and everyone enjoyed themselves.

“Around 100 people visited our members’ exhibition and we had a good collection of stalls including local heritage groups and one by the Benjamin Foundation, who also provided refreshments.”

Throughout the afternoon, there was a full programme of live music and singers on hand to entertain the crowds, including Simon Benefer, of Jessie’s Ghost, and Amy Bone.

Kathy said: “We had some really good acoustic performances and one by a poet, who was really good.”

The event was raising money for the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House.
