Introducing HEAD EAST and thank you to our partners

A celebration of Arts, Culture and Heritage in the East of England!

Head East is a new year-long campaign celebrating the rich diversity of arts, culture, and heritage in and around Norfolk and Suffolk. There’s an abundance of places, spaces and events to explore close to home, for a day, an overnight stay or for longer. And with something for everyone, you can search for the latest news and updates here on the Visit East of England website.

Cultural experiences bring us together, help us make sense of the world and provide moments of laughter, tears, learning and quality time with friends and family that we’ve missed over recent months.

Supported by the New Anglia LEP Culture Board (with funding from Arts Council England), Norfolk County Council, Suffolk County Council, Interreg France (Channel) England Programme/EXPERIENCE, University of East Anglia (UEA) and Visit East of England, Head East will showcase what’s happening from community events and exhibitions, to festivals, new works and artistic programmes throughout 2021 and beyond.

We hope Head East will inspire you to return to your old favourite places or try something new, as cultural events start to open up across the year.

It’s good to be back.
