The Norfolk and Norwich Festival attracts each year thousands of people with its spectacular performances and concerts (over 29,000 people in 2009).

"With its blend of classical and contemporary music, children’s events and contemporary performances there really is something to tempt everyone at this year’s Norfolk and Norwich Festival.
It’s by far the biggest festival ever, and takes in venues that include one of the only surviving Victorian hippodromes, a Norwich city nightspot, the open spaces of Earlham Park and the beautifully refurbished Theatre Royal.
Choose the exhilaration of circus and pyrotechnic spectacle, the polished splendour of great orchestras, ensembles and choirs or the twists and turns of contemporary theatre."
