Public booking is now open for Norfolk & Norwich Festival.

from 17 – 30 May 2021

The 14-day event is set to be a specially created one-off adaptation including outdoor and socially distanced performance, art and music as well as a digital strand. All events require booking, though everything in this year’s programme is either free or ‘pay what you want’.

The programme, which is slightly smaller than usual, is designed to be as adaptable as possible given current circumstances, and created with a desire to provide employment opportunities for artists, as well as entertainment and a sense of community pride. The ‘pay what you want’ structure has been designed by Festival organisers and partners to encourage as many people as want to find something within the Festival that they might enjoy.

The Festival will take place in venues across the city and county, as well as at the newly reopened Festival Gardens where a brand-new Festival music weekend has been announced in collaboration with Wild Paths – Garden Sessions. Festival Gardens will also see the return of the much-loved Garden Party over the middle weekend.

All Festival events will be in line with government guidelines. To stay in touch with the latest news and programme announcements visit or follow the Festival’s social media channels.
