Straight From The Horse's Mouth - 30/09/2016

Each Friday we'll be live on Future Radio, highlighting some of the best events and things to do over the next week or so!

If you heard us on there this week then have a read to remind yourselves of what we talked about (and don’t forget to tune in to Future Radio at 4.15pm each Friday to stay up to date!) 

Here are Laura's picks:

We have a really varied collection of events taking place this weekend:

The African and Caribbean Market is at The Forum tomorrow, 10am – 5.30pm. There’ll be lots of stalls with crafts, food, fashion, beauty, homewares etc! There’ll also be entertainment including dancing, storytelling, music, face-painting and much more! Free entry.

Catch The Eighth in the East exhibition, a three-year Heritage Lottery Fund project exploring the legacy of the 8th United States Army Air Force, as it brings its new touring exhibition to the Maids Head Hotel. It looks set to be a really eye-opening and delightful exhibition so we’d really recommend you see it whilst it’s there at the hotel, until 6 October.

To coincide with this exhibition you can also take the “Discover Norwich’s USA Connections – Guided Walking Tour” on Saturday, 11.30am, and that will give you lots of interesting information about the Air Force’s time in Norwich and connections with the city which span over 400 years! Tickets £7.50, meet outside The Forum.

Agatha Christie’s much-loved play, Witness for the Prosecution, is played out on the Maddermarket Theatre stage tonight at 7.30pm and tomorrow at 2.30 & 7.30pm; tickets are available from their website – check the VisitNorwich site for more details.

On Saturday night there’s a Mozart Orchestra concert at St Andrew’s Hall, Norwich this Saturday evening, 7.30pm. This is the Mozart Orchestra’s final concert of 2016 so well worth going if you can! Ticket price depends on seat location but range from £6 - £10 and children are just £3.

Also at St Andrew’s Hall on Sunday is the Lou Lou's Norwich Vintage Fair. It’s winner of 'Best Vintage Fair' at the last 3 national awards and will have 40 stalls of vintage fashion, homeware and collectables plus a gorgeous tea room, live performances on the stage and you can even get pampered in the vintage beauty salon! Entry £2, open 11am – 4pm.

BeWILDerwood have their Swampy Trail until 16 October which actually takes place in the city; take photos with the Boggle himself at six locations and you could win some great prizes! For more information check our website.

We'd recommend giving History Mystery or Cryptic Escape a go, both in the city centre. Both are live adventure games where you have to solve mysteries and puzzles to 'win' the game. History Mystery focuses more on real-life historical cases that actually occured in Norwich, whilst Cryptic Escape is a must if you fancy that 'escape room' experience!
