As we increasingly invite you to shape the Festival and discover our Festival Spirit, we’ll be offering you more and more opportunities to, not just consume the Festival… but also be a part of it. MAKE & DO sees community collaboration and participation. News News News is a topical broadcast… made for adults… by children. The show brings to the stage the city’s current affairs, all seen through the eyes of a ten year old.

In the culmination of a three year project with Stopgap Dance, Frippery brings this acclaimed company together with around thirty local people as they explore identity and celebrate some amazing clothing!  We also hand over the Festival for a day to a group of young people to curate their own programme in Engage!. They challenge the current socio-political climate with words, ideas and debate.

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.
