The Ten Town Tour is covering the length and breadth of Norfolk

BBC Norfolk, on radio and online, is taking to the road for a huge tour of Norfolk visiting 10 towns in 10 days from Monday, 16 to Friday, 27 November, 2009.

The Ten Town Tour aims to get to the heart of some of Norfolk's towns, revealing the stories of the people who live there.

We'll also be telling the rest of Norfolk things they perhaps didn't know about some of our most populated areas.

Getting around Norfolk

BBC Radio Norfolk is the county's radio station and wants to get around the patch in the BBC bus to meet you, the people who help create one of the most beautiful places in the country.

"The most exciting part of the Ten Town Tour is meeting the people who make each town tick," said Martyn Weston, assistant editor at BBC Norfolk.

"Each town is very different, full of characters and we're looking forward to getting underneath the skin of the area, revealing things people wouldn't know.

"It's also an opportunity for people to come and see us in action and get involved with what we do online and on-air," he added.

On the air

The BBC bus rolls into one town per day where BBC Radio Norfolk will be broadcasting live throughout its programmes.

Karen and Graham will be presenting their show from 10am until 1pm.

Stephen Bumfrey will take over in a town near you from 1pm and Matthew Gudgin will you bring you all the highlights of the day during the drive home from 4pm.


As part of the build-up to the Ten Town Tour, on BBC Radio Norfolk we asked you to record and create videos of the town where you live and what it is you love about it the most - and you responded in your droves.

We received some fantastic film showcasing the beauty of each town and it shares with us a fascinating insight into what Norfolk is really like.

A video from each town, created by BBC Voices, will be shown on the BBC Norfolk website along with an official film presentation on the giant HD screen in Fusion, at The Forum, Norwich, where you can see your videos every day for two weeks from 23 November.
