14 March 2017

This week there’s plenty to fill your time with. From debates and pampering to comedy and classical music, here are our highlights!

 

WHAT ARE ‘BRITISH VALUES’?

Thursday evening sees the University of East Anglia (UEA)'s Kewsick Hall Lecture Series continue with a really interesting roundtable discussion about what it means to have ‘British Values’, with leaders of various religious faiths sharing their perspectives. This is free to attend and open to all, so make sure you take advantage of this opportunity to spend an evening testing - and possibly challenging – your own views and opinions.

Thursday 16 March, 6.30pm, Thomas Paine Study Centre on the UEA campus. Free entry. More details here.

 

HAYDN THE SEASONS

Norwich Phil

The Norwich Philharmonic returns for another ambitious show, this time performing the oratorio The Seasons by Joseph Haydn. Conducted by David Dunnett, the concert will be set amongst the backdrop of The Halls, which always makes for a spectacular venue!

Saturday 18 March, 7.30pm, The Halls. Visit their website for ticket prices and further information. More details about the event here.

 

PAMPER TIME!
