Free, but booking required
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.
Do you have a poem that has been a friend to you? Come along to Dragon Hall for a friendly, individual chat about your chosen poem and a cup of tea with The Poetry Exchange podcast team. In exchange, you’ll receive a gift: a special recording of your chosen poem, inspired by the conversation. You might even end up on their show!
‘This whole exchange has provided me with an embarrassment of riches. Grateful. Humbled.’ – Paterson Joseph
One person per session.
