This is a past event which has now ended.

When you are ready for bed a child from somewhere else in the world will come and tell you a story.

Across the world, children aged between 9 and 12 years old, have been working together to build a collection of stories and will tell you one before you go to sleep. Snuggle up in your favourite pyjamas and listen to tales of adventure, love, and inspiration, epic histories and domestic dramas.

Taking advantage of international time differences, children in one country tell bedtime stories to adults in another country in a series of one-to-one encounters, connecting the world through storytelling.

Bedtime Stories promotes cultural exchange by giving audiences a window into storytelling and literary traditions in other parts of the world.

Sweet dreams.

Children in Montréal, Canada will be telling stories to the residents of Norfolk, later in the year the children of Norwich will be telling stories to adults in Singapore.

Quand vous êtes prêt à vous coucher, un enfant de l’autre côté de la planète viendra vous raconter une histoire.

Dans le monde entier, des enfants âgés de 9 à 12 ans ont travaillé ensemble pour constituer des histoires et vous en raconteront une pour vous guider vers le sommeil.

Blottissez-vous dans votre pyjama préféré et écoutez des récits d’aventure, des histoires d’amour, inspirantes et épiques ou encore des drames domestiques.

Profitant du décalage horaire, des enfants d’un pays racontent des histoires avant de s’endormir à des adultes d’un autre pays dans une série de rencontres individuelles, reliant ainsi le monde par le biais des contes.

Bedtime Stories promeut les échanges interculturels en offrant au public une fenêtre sur les contes et les traditions orales d’autres régions du monde.

Faites de beaux rêves !

Des enfants de Montréal, au Canada, raconteront des histoires aux habitants de Norfolk. Plus tard dans l’année, les enfants de Norwich raconteront des histoires aux adultes de Singapour.

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.
