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.

Tickets for Anish Kapoor were booked directly through Houghton Hall, find out more here

Two exciting works by internationally celebrated artist, Cristina Iglesias, who was recently awarded the Royal Academy Architecture Prize, London (2020) and the Gold Medal of Merit in the Fine Arts, Madrid (2015). An immersive installation, Vegetation Room III is a defined architectural space. The interior walls are casts of organic vegetation, turning the experience of walking into a building inside out, and Celosía XI (Hafsa Bint-Al-Hayy) consists of a series of seven terracotta screens that mimic the lattices that protect wall openings in Arab architecture.
