Festival Food Vendors

Applications to become a food vendor at our 2022 Festival are now closed

This year, the Norfolk & Norfolk Festival will return for its 250th anniversary from Friday 13 – Sunday 29 May. We are looking for food vendors to provide catering for the Festival’s Garden Party, a weekend of outdoor family shows and activities in Chapelfield Gardens, on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 May.

At Norfolk & Norwich Festival, we take environmental responsibility seriously and we want to ensure that our efforts towards a more sustainable Festival span the entire organisation, including the concessions we work with to feed our audiences, crews and artists. We are proud of the steps that we have taken to ensure our Festival is forward-thinking when it comes to sustainability, and we’re excited to do more. That is why we’re rethinking how we bring food and drink vendors on board with us for Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2022 and beyond.

We have created a set of ‘Green Trading Standards’ that we would like to work with vendors to achieve, as well as an eco-bond which takes the form of a 50% refundable deposit for vendors who meet our essential trading standards. We’re excited to connect with new and existing vendors and bring them on the journey with us towards a more sustainable practice.

If you would like to work with an exciting, vibrant Festival and you believe that you share our values, download our Green Trading Standards document and an application form below.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
