Share you festival memories
MONDAY 17 MAY – SUNDAY 30 MAY
With 248 years’ worth of concerts, performances and projects, the memories of Festivalgoers paint a rich picture of Norfolk community, music, love, performance, and everything in between. Re/Collect 250 is a new student-led oral history project aiming to uncover and document some of these more recent theatrical tales, but we need your help to do so.
We’re looking for your stories. Maybe you attended an early Festival concert that kicked off your love for a composer, or maybe your child’s first live show was at the Garden Party. Do you have a cracking story about a night at the Adnams Spiegeltent, or are you an annual attendee at one of our legendary tea dances? If you’ve participated in a schools projects, contributed to one of our community pieces, or just have something to say about the Festival, we want to hear from you. Interviews can take place either at the special Recording Booth in our Chantry Place Box Office, or via Zoom.
Across May’s Festival, University of East Anglia students and award-winning Sound Designer Helen Atkinson will be conducting hundreds of virtual and in-person interviews with audience members to help paint this picture. To book your interview, follow the link below, fill out an availability form, then someone from the project will be in touch. There will even be a little treat for the first hundred interviewees!
