Festival Bridge

The Bridge Network (2012-2023) 

Like all Bridges across the country, Festival Bridge came to an end on 31 March. 

The Bridge Network was established in 2012 and was funded throughout by Arts Council England. Festival Connect & Create draws on the decade long legacy of Bridge along with the Festival Creative Learning work. 

The new Bridge Report summarises the development of the Bridge Network & reflects on their collective achievements and ways of working, with a focus on delivering better outcomes for young people in the arts, culture & education sectors.

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 year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
