Wandering Words: A Walking Tour of Norwich UNESCO City of Literature

Sunday 14 August, 12.00am–Wednesday 31 August, 12.00am

Follow the walking trail and scan the QR code at each marked location to hear an immersive audio recording of a poem, as well as sounds of the people and settings that inspired each writer’s work. All you need is your mobile phone!

Discover Norwich of the past, present and future through newly commissioned stories from five brilliant writers with ties to the city: Andy Bennett, Hannah Levene, Victoria Adukwei-Bulley, Piers Harrison-Reid and Jessica Streeting. On this self-guided walk you’ll experience Norwich with fresh eyes and encounter the people and locations that inspired each writers’ work.

This literary walk has been created to celebrate the ten year anniversary of Norwich becoming England’s first UNESCO City of Literature. National Centre for Writing has commissioned five writers with a connection to the city to respond creatively to a particular place in Norwich or to an event in its history. These new works represent the breadth of new writing happening in, around and inspired by the city.

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.
