We invite you to a rain walk – a walk in the rain accompanied by the recorded voices of children from across the UK and Ireland. With their guidance the rainfall will become your own private theatre, a space in which to observe, imagine and play.

Because we are no better at predicting when it might rain than you are, everything you need to experience the show is contained within a little box that is sent to you when you purchase a ticket. Keep it safe until the weather turns.

Then, whether in a drizzle or a deluge, alone or with friends or family, we invite you to step outside, feel the rain on your face, and think about your place in this world that is changing so swiftly around us.

A Rain Walk is an interactive audio walk for adults and families created remotely with children from across the UK and Ireland. One ticket can be used by a single person or a household of up to 5 people. Each audience member will require their own digital device on which to download and listen to the piece.


‘an elegantly executed blend of sound art and interactive theatre… turned a usually mundane walk in the rain into something magical.’ Molly Longstaff, The University Times

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.
