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 magical hour of building, music and dancing for all the family.

Create enticing caves, wonky castles and fabulous creatures. Let imaginations run riot as hundreds of boxes are built, stacked, squashed and rebuilt. Together with award winning performers Anna Williams and Tom Roden create an enchanting, ever-changing landscape as they share their engrossing tale.  A tale in which the strongest thing we can build is friendship.

The Buildy-uppy Dance Show is a participatory theatre and dance experience for children AND adults. Please come in shoes and clothes that you can move around in.
