"We will have the big manifesto vote between 3-5 May for the young people to vote on the statements collected so far.

"We will create the final manifesto on May 13 and the show will be great at the Alive Corn Exchange with young people playing drums and guitars and using projections on to the screen.

"We are trying to target largely under 25s but anyone can vote if they contact info@collusion.org.uk

"Tickets are free and we are hoping to get a great audience."

Members of the community are able to vote in the poll to create a manifesto for Lynn on climate change.

Rachel said: "From Friday, April 29 to Thursday, May 5, we're asking as many local young people, 11 - 25 years as possible to vote on the statements we've collected using a website called pol.is. Voting is anonymous.

"Every vote counts and the software groups the responses to find areas where there is consensus of opinion across all the participants. The conversation will be live for votes until 5pm on May 5.

"Writer Karen Eng will use the results of the vote to compile the manifesto which will feed into a live performance on Friday, May 13 at the Alive Corn Exchange and inspire an exhibition of art works around Lynn town centre from May 14-31 as part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival."
