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.

A cornucopia of dancing delights, featuring a DJ playing vintage dance music, glamorous costumes, glorious dance displays, and our trademark Instant Dance Classes in a number of popular rhythms. Everyone is welcome, absolute beginners and experienced dancers alike. No partners needed!

It’s Tropicalia! Summer Samba and Bossa Nova – inspired by the Brazilian Bombshell Carmen Miranda, and channelling the spirit of Carnival in Rio. Expect a tropical cocktail of vintage Latin favourites, from sizzling Sambas to sultry Bossa Novas, sexy Salsas, and lilting Lambadas. Don Hawaiian shirts, ra-ra- skirts, flowered and feathered head-dresses – or whatever else carnival-inspired that takes your fancy.

Events will also feature a general mix of Ballroom, Latin and Swing dance rhythms.
