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.

Beethoven String Quartet No.12 in E flat Major, Op.127
Attacca Quartet presents a programme which focuses on two of Beethoven’s seminal string quartets: his first quartet, written in around 1798, and the first of his great Late Quartets, widely regarded as among the greatest musical compositions of all time. The programme is completed by Gabriella Smith’s memorably titled Carrot Revolution, described by reviewer Kevin McBrien as a “breath-taking eleven minute ride” and “a wild journey, complete with snatches of minimalism, bluegrass, and rock along the way.”
The Attacca Quartet is one of the most dynamic ensembles of their generation. Praised by The Strad for possessing “maturity beyond its members’ years,” they were formed at the Juilliard School in 2003. They have won awards in several international competitions including the Grand Prize in both the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition and the Alice Coleman International Chamber Music Competition, and the Radio Listener’s Choice Award in the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition. They have a busy international touring schedule and their appearances in 2019-20 include the White Lights Festival at the Lincoln Center in New York, the MiTO Festival in Italy, the Sydney Festival in Australia, and tours throughout North and South America, Asia, the UK, and Norway.
‘They may be a relatively young ensemble, but already they come very close to epitomising the string quartet ideal: four strikingly individual players with the ability to speak eloquently in one voice.’ The Washington Post
