Calling all musicians, poets, dancers, performers!

Young Norfolk Arts wants to showcase young talent from across the county as part of our Young Norfolk Arts Festival running 1-10 July 2022.

There will be opportunities to perform live as part of our Lost River Stage as part of this year’s Lord Mayor’s Celebration in Norwich, our Festival launch event at Norwich Arts Centre and the Head Out Not Home showcase at the end of July.

Open to musicians, bands, dancers or dance groups, poets, spoken word, circus, or any performers aged up to 25 years and based in (or with links to) Norfolk. We want the Festival to represent creativity and cultures from across the county, so wherever you’re based and whatever you perform, we want to hear from you!
