Artists will open up their studios to the public on the weekends of September 11 and 12 and September 18 and 19 and art will also appear in local shops. This year's event is entitled The Closer You Get Diss Appears.

The former Yes keyboardist joins South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon, who plans to walk part of the route, and art critic Brian Sewell in support for the Waveney Springs Art Trail.

The musician, who lives at Scole, near Diss, said: “I whole heartedly support the Waveney Springs art trail and the local shops collaborating with the local artists. It's a fact that as I get closer, Diss appears.”

The trial has been organised by the Waveney Springs Art Collective. Throughout September, the Old Stables at the Diss Corn Hall will have an exhibition of work from featured artists from 11am to 4pm, Monday to Saturday.
