City Of Literature Status Celebrated At Norwich

Posted at 7:59AM Wednesday 05 Dec 2012

The Lord Mayor of Norwich, Ralph Gayton, hosted the reception at Blackfriars' Hall, in St Andrews Street, to celebrate the hard work which went in to secure the status.

Writers from Norwich and around the east of England joined the lord mayor and Brenda Arthur, leader of Norwich City Council and cabinet member with responsibility for culture, at the reception.

Norwich won its UNESCO bid in May, making it only the sixth city in the world to receive the designation, alongside Edinburgh in Scotland, Melbourne in Australia, Iowa City in the USA, Dublin in Ireland and Iceland's capital, Reykjavik.
