Norfolk & Norwich Festival
9-25 May 2014
Opus No 7
Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2014 announced!
We are delighted to be able to bring you the full programme for this year’s Norfolk & Norwich Festival, taking place from 9 – 25 May 2014.
This year we are excited to be bringing a range of international performers to Norfolk, as well as celebrating the best of local talent. Highlights of the Festival include the extraordinary Opus No 7, exploring artistic rebellion against an autocratic state, a World Premiere from Norfolk-based theatrical ensemble curious directive and a return to the Theatre Royal by dance iconoclast Michael Clark.
Our contemporary music programme kicks off party-style on the first night with Grammy award winners Snarky Puppy, and on the same evening the magnificent Philharmonia Orchestra with internationally-renowned violinist Tasmin Little. Later in the Festival world music star Toumani Diabaté and his son Sidiki will be enchanting audiences with their kora playing.
Our annual Outdoor programme includes a spectacular finale with Safe House, combining aerialists, projection and a poignant reflection of what we call home. Three Visual Art commissions include Stephen Brandes’ billboards adorning Cathedral Close and we are delighted to be celebrating Norwich’s status as a UNESCO City of Literature with a range of events including the annual Harriet Martineau lecture by Kate Mosse.
Our iconic venue, The Adnams Spiegeltent will once again be bursting with a programme of cabaret, music and dance providing plenty of opportunities to let your hair down; don’t miss the return of the inimitable Die Roten Punkte with a storming set from their latest album.
All this plus much more for audiences of all ages with events in Norwich and across the county. We look forward to seeing you at the Festival in May.
