Norfolk & Norwich Festiva

Discover the Norfolk & Norwich Festival

For 17 days each May, the Festival transforms our public spaces, city streets, performance venues, parks, forests and beaches, bringing people together to experience the same brilliant and inspirational events. The flagship arts festival for the East of England, our world-class programme spans music, theatre, literature, visual arts, circus, dance and free outdoor events.

The Festival Launch - Transe Express - 11 May - 9 PM

Norfolk & Norwich Festival Launch

This year’s Festival opens in spectacular style as carnivalesque drummers take over the streets and larger than life singing dolls transform Norwich city centre into a fantastical open air opera house.
