This year’s Festival opens in spectacular style as carnivalesque drummers take over the streets and larger than life singing dolls transform Norwich city centre into a fantastical open air opera house.
Transe Express have delighted audiences around the world. Join the parade and be awed by the astonishing aerial finale of this musical celebration for the whole family.
If you are attending David McAlmont presents Billie Holiday or Songs of the Sea just before this event, you will be able to enjoy the Launch. NNF staff will be outside the respective venues to direct you to where to join the parade.
