An elaborate theatrical spectacle is set to take to the stage in north Norfolk next month - and there is still time for people to join the show's cast.

Wolf's Child is one of the headline shows for this year's Norfolk and Norwich Festival and will see the grounds of Felbrigg Hall transformed into a mysterious twilight world full of shape-shifting characters.

The promenade performance is being created by theatre makers WildWorks, and there are still places left for people to join the production.
