This Weekend

Fri 25 May - Sun 27 May 2018

Gin Festival @ The Rooftop Gardens, Norwich, Thurs 25 – Fri 25 May

If the sun is shining I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be after work than supping a large G&T on the terrace taking in the Norwich skyline!

 It’s a festival of gin – a chance to sample lots of different flavours while pretending to learn about the gin making process – hoorah!
We love a freebie and your ticket includes a Rooftop Copa Glass and one free drink!

Book Tickets £12.50


N&N Festival – Wayfarings, Wells-next-the-sea, Wed 23 – Sun 27 May

Using local and found materials, artists will craft an installation on Wells Beach which audiences can move through, investigate and contribute to. On the final weekend, illumination, music and performance will transform the installation in a rousing celebration.



Sunday Session, Earlham Park, Norwich, Sun 27 May  

Sunday sessions festival

So excited – finally Norwich is on the festival map and the ‘Sunday Sessions’ first time visit to the city will make the Bank Holiday one to remember!

The fab line-up includes the Kaiser Chiefs, Tom Odell, Blue Tones and Circa Waves! Lots of free activities for the kids include circus workshops, face painting, crafts, a super funfair and children’s entertainers.

Book Tickets from £40


Damien Hirst Exhibition, Houghton Hall, until 15 July

Maybe best avoided after a night out as you’ll be seeing spots everywhere! Only kidding, what an exciting opener for the Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2018 and what better backdrop to Damien Hurst’s iconic spot paintings than the opulent Houghton Hall. This is the first public viewing of the new series of 46 paintings entitled ‘Colour Space’. Take a walk around the beautiful 18th Century house and grounds to see some of the artist’s most celebrated sculptures including the celebrated Virgin Mother, Charity, Anatomy of an Angel and two from the levitation series featuring air blowers and table tennis balls.

Added Muddy bonus – until the end of July the Houghton Hall Stable blocks is home to pop up art gallery Norfolk by Design – featuring a selection of Norfolk’s finest artists and craftspeople. Book tickets  £18.00 and under 17’s are free!
