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.
Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. This is an extraordinary situation and we are deeply saddened that we will not be able bring you a Festival this year.
We deeply value our place in both the local and artistic communities and during this difficult period, we will unreservedly play our part in supporting the artistic sector to ensure they come out of this situation as strongly as possible.
Bill Jackson’s beautiful film about the making of Man Of Stones, by Laurence Edwards. A piece of visual poetry that explores the creation and development of a remarkable sculpture. Man of Stones by acclaimed Suffolk artist Laurence Edwards is a site-specific work, situated on a promontory of land between the river Yare and broad, a deceptively remote and wild place.
Man of Stones is the latest creation by Edwards and concerned with the placing of a figure in landscape.
Natural materials from the sculpture’s site such as flint and bullrushes have been incorporated during the making of this bronze sculpture. Edwards’ sculpture provides a timely reminder of the interdependent relationship between humanity and nature.
