As one of Britain's most ancient counties, Norfolk has a rich history of folk tales and legends which have echoed through the centuries and are still told by residents today – making it the perfect setting for a City of Stories.
Norwich has a knack for not only producing but refining (largely thanks to UEA’s creative writing programme!) some fantastic literary figures over the past 700 years or so. We’re incredibly proud of this legacy - and rightly so, because it’s a very impressive list which includes philosophers, writers and best-selling authors!
This has to be one of the most innovative, exciting ways to spend an arty break in Norwich – but you’ll need to be quick!
This summer, channel that just-been-for-a-stroll-in-the-countryside, relaxed, no-worries feeling by… actually getting out into the countryside for a relaxing break in Norfolk!
Didn't get Glastonbury tickets? Don't like mud!? Do not fear - our handpick of Norfolk's top literary festivals is here...
So, you’ve been to the Norfolk & Norwich Millennium Library in The Forum and were bound to be hugely impressed by the choice of books (and other media) to lose yourself in. It would be easy to assume this is the extent of Norwich’s ‘library’ offer – but you’d be wrong! There’s plenty more to discover.
We’re letting out a cheer as this year sees the inaugural Norwich Radical Film Festival arrive and it promises to leave a lasting impression on Norwich’s cinema scene – read on to see why we’re so looking forward to it!
We love to celebrate notable women through history, but some deserve to be more highly celebrated - outside of academic circles, anyway. One, in particular, tends to be Julian of Norwich; the first woman to write a book in the English language (which has survived, anyway) and a hugely respected writer and mystic (no crystal balls here!).
Mr. Timothy Bottoms has had a prolific career to say the least. He starred in the Academy Award winning The Last Picture Show that resonated with an entire generation and defined New Hollywood cinema, which has since been added to the Library of Congress collection.
