Heritage Open Days

New Wave & Re/Collect 250

Thurs 16 Sept, 7.30pm

This is a past event which has now ended.

Join us as we celebrate heritage with new animation work from young creatives and live music courtesy of stripped sets in the beautiful St Peter Hungate!

Re/Collect 250 is a collaborative community oral history project that looks ahead to Norfolk & Norwich Festival’s 250th Anniversary by gathering stories of Festivals past. Over May 2021, history students from the University of East Anglia interviewed audience members, artists, volunteers and staff to explore the Festival’s impact on the social and creative lives of people in Norfolk over the past century.

Now, the history cohort have teamed up with Norfolk Heritage Open Days’ New Wave programme, to boldly interpret the material they’ve collected, asking how oral history can be re-imagined as an exciting, tangible and relevant practice for young people today.

The event will also feature live music from Alice-Lily, Night House and Aphra.

This is part of New Wave, a series of innovative, dynamic, youth-led events being produced for this year’s Heritage Open Days festival.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts.
