This is a past event which has now ended.

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.

Following their memorable Norwich Cathedral performance of Monteverdi’s Vespers in 2017, Vox Luminis return to the Festival with a programme juxtaposing Renaissance and Baroque music with three intensely evocative sacred settings by Benjamin Britten. This promises to be a performance that is contemplative and uplifting in equal measure.

Established 15 years ago, Vox Luminis brings together a group of solo voices specialising in early music. Its recordings have won numerous awards, most recently as Choral award winners in both the 2018 BBC Music Magazine and 2019 Gramophone Awards.

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

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts. Find out more about how you can support us, as an individual or as an organisation below.
