Norfolk and Norwich Festival
May 17 @ 8:00 am - May 30 @ 5:00 pm
‘Our 2021 Festival will be a one-off adaptation, with programme and presentation designed especially for Covid-times and following the latest Government guidance.
Our first priority will be ensuring the safety and comfort of our audiences, artists and staff whilst bringing an entertaining and exciting Festival to Norwich and Norfolk.
We collaborate year-round with extraordinary artists – some from the region, some from the other side of the world – and with communities across Norfolk and Norwich to create unmissable experiences that have the potential to change lives.
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.
We have been an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation since April 2012 and are one of 10 Bridge Organisations with a mandate to develop arts and cultural opportunities for children and young people in the East of England.’
