From a production of Shakespeare's The Tempest in a Victorian circus hippodrome to Norfolk teenage singer-songwriters reinventing musical theatre in Wild Life...

From a live recreation of The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour at Norwich Theatre Royal to a home visit from a singer who will offer to heal your soul through opera...

From a pedal-powered cinematic car chase to Aurora Orchestra playing Beethoven for free all over the city...

From the National Theatre of Scotland's epic The James Plays to a celebration of Mahler both big and small...

From the beautiful melodies of Max Richter and Tindersticks to a ballet of human beings and a robotic arm…

From an outdoor installation created by our communities to a jazz gig where you control the musicians through an app on your phone…

These are just a few of the unique experiences you can have during this year's Festival. With over 7 original commissions and productions, numerous premieres and a huge breadth of artists from many different art forms – often responding to a unique sense of Norfolk and Norwich – it's not surprising that so many of our audience eagerly anticipate the Festival programme each year. We bring you events and experiences you simply could not have at any other time. Not only is Norfolk & Norwich Festival one of the region's best loved celebrations of the arts, it is increasingly seen as one of the most important arts festivals in the UK.

With continued support from Arts Council England, Norwich City Council and many other sponsors and funders we can keep ticket prices as accessible as possible; so jump right in and try out as much as you can – after all it's only for seventeen days and you can sleep for the whole of June!

Price: See website for more information on individual events

Location: At various venues across Norfolk and Norwich
