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.

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

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts. Find out more about how you can support us, as an individual or as an organisation below.
