Your Visit



The background is filled with blue sky & a flint church. There is a pink cherry blossom tree, in full bloom. In front of the tree is a red telephone box.

Norwich is a vibrant city, rich with culture and history, as well as being the UK’s first UNESCO City of Literature and home to the largest open-air market in the country. When you’re not at a Festival event you can visit the award winning Norwich Lanes; host to over 300 independent shops, cafes and bars. Or take a trip down Magdalen Street where shops are bursting at the seams with antique goodies to hunt through. Norwich is also home to the historic Norwich Cathedral and Norwich Castle, both available to visit seven days a week.

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 year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
