Active Arts Project

As a result of Arts Council funding awarded to Norfolk Showground Limited the Norfolk Showground, Norfolk’s premier events venue, will be opening its doors free of charge to cultural and arts-based groups for the month of June and also now to the end of July 2021!

Facilities and outdoor space will be made available for exhibitions, rehearsals and performances. The initiative known as Active Arts Project will run for the month of June and July 2021 and is open to any Norfolk-based cultural and arts groups.

The aim of the project is to enable local groups to recover from Covid by using the facilities and space on offer at Norfolk Showground and help them navigate social distancing restrictions. The project will also help demonstrate that Norfolk Showground is a versatile and accommodating events venue.

Preference will be given to those organisations based in urban areas and those groups who help disadvantaged young people.

This project is made possible by funding received from the Culture Recovery Fund.

Mark Nicholas, managing director said “thanks to support from the Arts Council culture recovery fund we are able to make available our extensive range of facilities to be used by cultural and arts groups. Active Arts project is a demonstration of how Norfolk Showground can help community-based groups. We encourage you to make contact”.
