Norfolk & Norwich Festival

Norfolk & Norwich Festival is a charity which shares exceptional arts experiences across East England.


Norfolk & Norwich Festival is the flagship arts festival for the East of England and celebrates its 250th year in 2022.

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.

Every May the Festival transforms the historic city of Norwich and surrounding county through a world-class programme of international art and performance as well as some of the finest home grown talent.

The Festival showcases the very best in classical and contemporary music, theatre, circus, dance, visual arts and outdoor work, all spread across a range of wonderful venues or against the background of the unique Norfolk landscape.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival is also a charity which shares exceptional arts experiences across the East of England through a number of projects and initiatives, leading and supporting celebration, creativity and curiosity throughout its communities.
