A new arts project has been launched to help reinforce pubs as central hubs of rural and community life.

The Inn Crowd project has been created to support pubs across rural regions throughout the South East and East of England including Norfolk.

It will bring a wide range of artistic and spoken word events to the venues involved and provide customers with unique pub entertainment.

Events currently include cabaret celebrations at The Crown pub in Burston and The Lodge in North Tuddenham, a show about the famous DJ John Peel at The Banningham Crown and a literature event at The Fox in Lyng.

It is supported by Creative Arts East, which has also announced it is partnering with national organisation Pub is the Hub to help pubs across the region better cater for the communities they operate in.
