Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2020 has been cancelled

It is with regret that we have taken the very difficult but ultimately inevitable decision to cancel the 2020 Norfolk & Norwich Festival.

With the rapidly escalating health-crisis and with the safety of our audiences, staff and artists at heart, we have taken the decision that it is impossible for us to deliver the Festival this May.

If you have booked a ticket for the Festival, you do not need to do anything. You are entitled to a refund and we will be in touch soon. Please bear with us during this difficult time. If you have the capacity to make a donation of part or all of your ticket value, we would be extremely grateful – it would help ensure we’re well-placed to support artists and be able to present future Festivals.

A creative, interactive experience not to be missed – A Delicate Sight includes a film, exhibition and guided creative activity.

This unique experiential event invites you to engage with what happens beyond the visible and place darkness at the centre of your perception. Enter the dark room installation and respond creatively to the ways in which your senses, thoughts and emotions are heightened.

A number of the UK’s leading writers – including Bernardine Evaristo, Max Porter, Raymond Antrobus and Don Paterson – were commissioned to spend time in the same installation. Emerge from the dark and immerse yourself in an exhibition of their responses, before taking time to develop and reflect on what the experience has meant to you.

Ticket price includes a special edition book, featuring the work of the participating writers.

‘Extremely immersive, created so many thoughts and emotions. Feels like a completely different world was created with its own rules.’ Participant from the Southbank Centre
