Norwich City Centre

About the venue

Norwich is a fine city, and the most complete medieval city in England.

Norwich is a vibrant city, rich with culture and history, as well as being the UK’s first UNESCO City of Literature and home to the largest open-air market in the country. When you’re not at a Festival event you can visit the award winning Norwich Lanes; host to over 300 independent shops, cafes and bars. Or take a trip down Magdalen Street where shops are bursting at the seams with antique goodies to hunt through. Norwich is also home to the historic Norwich Cathedral and Norwich Castle, both available to visit seven days a week.

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.
