If 17 days (12 – 28 May) of jam-packed with amazing theatre, circus, live music, literature, exhibitions, free outdoor spectaculars and much more sounds right up your street, then Norwich is the place to be this May.
There’s plenty happening this week, so we’ve selected seven highlights (in no particular order):
One of the most iconic buildings in Norwich – the Bridewell – has a rather fascinating history…

Here’s a story of bravery and battle, which took place right here in Norfolk thousands of years ago!
Casanova wasn’t just a legendary lover; he had real substance, you know! With so many other talents under his belt he would no doubt have been horrified to know his legacy today largely focuses on his womanising ways...
Here’s a romantic and inspiring story which has sprung from an unexpected source: the discovery of an ancient gold seal matrix in Norfolk.
If you want to feel like you’ve stepped straight into South America without straying from Norfolk, Amazona Zoo is the place to be!
Get yourselves organised – next week it’s half term, so there’s plenty going on in and around Norwich. Too many activities to list, actually, so we’ve selected our top family-friendly highlights:
