Talking Statues Norwich

Throughout The Festival

This is a past event which has now ended.

Across Norwich City Centre

If statues could talk, what stories would they tell?

Ten of Norwich’s historic statues have been given the gift of the gab! Stephen Fry and Olivia Colman are amongst the writers and actors bringing the city’s statues to life. Together, they tell Norwich’s story.

Pass a Talking Statue, swipe your smartphone on a nearby plaque and hey presto, get a call back from Lord Nelson, The City Hall Lions or Julian of Norwich.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

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

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
