COVID-19 – Welcoming you all back safely

We are working hard to create a safe environment at all events. We ask you act responsibly to protect staff, artists and audiences.


What we are doing to help keep you safe while you are at the Festival:

  • Staff and volunteers will be wearing face covering for all indoor events, unless exempt
  • Provide contactless ticketing and payments
  • Provide hand sanitising stations
  • We’re strongly encouraging all staff, artists and crew to do regular lateral flow tests, and are providing tests to enable this.

Events take place at various venues. Some venues may operate their own Covid-safe measures. We will endeavour to contact you via email regarding any specific measures. Always check the venue’s own website where possible.


What you can do:

  • We encourage all audience members to wear a face covering at indoor events, unless exempt
  • Please do not attend events if you are unwell, experience any Covid-19 symptoms or are currently testing positive for Covid-19

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.
