Ed Sheeran and others musicians feature in photo exhibition celebrating music in Norfolk

Music played throughout Norfolk in the last year is being celebrated at Norwich's Millennium Library over the next two weeks with a photo exhibition showcasing music gigs in the area.

The exhibition, Music: In Focus 2K11-2K12, hosted downstairs in the Forum library, is part of a partnership between the BBC Music Video Festival and the library.

It displays 72 photos taken at various gigs throughout the year and region by both professionals and amateur-go photographers.

Venues range from the University of East Anglia to Play Fest in Quidenham, and Latitude Festival in Southwold, while the photographs reflect the range of musicians coming to Norfolk.

Local musicians including Vagaband and Crystal Bats, as well as bigger names such as Ed Sheeran, Gilles Peterson and Blood Red Shoes all feature.

The exhibition is a part of the BBC Music Video Festival. The festival runs for three weeks and aims to show the best new music and video-making talents of directors from around world.

The videos have been filmed by local musicians, and will be screened alongside the efforts of international artists.

The event started in Norwich on Monday at Fusion in the Forum.

Julie Cleminson, the ground floor manager at the library, said the images on display 'sit nicely alongside the library's own collection of sound and vision material'.

She said: 'It's great that once again the Millennium Library does differently, and is able to provide such an eye-catching exhibition for visitors in a space they wouldn't expect.'

She added: 'As soon as you walk into the library space, you are taken straight into the heart of the Norwich music scene with colour images.'

The exhibition runs until September 23, and is free.
