Director's Circle

Help fund our new commissions, meet the artists, experience their artistic journey as it evolves and have exclusive access to our relationship with developing and showcasing talent.

Our Director’s Circle Supporters helped to put a moon over our beautiful city, filled the Assembly House with a choral sleepover and allowed you to ride a robot!

Each of our Director’s Circle Supporters is unique, and we showcase a selection of projects and artists to them so that they are part of the process from the beginning.

This is an exceptional insight into our work and each Supporter’s experience is personally tailored to them.

Suggested Donations from £3,000

If you would like to become a Director’s Circle member please contact:

Gemma Hoskins, Development Manager
Phone: 01603 877763

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.
