Wandering Words – a guided walking tour

Friday 27 May
City centre
2 - 3.30pm
£5

Discover Norwich of the past, present and future through newly commissioned poems from five brilliant writers with ties to the city: Andy Bennett, Hannah Levene, Victoria Adukwei-Bulley, Piers Harrison-Reid and Jessica Streeting. On this guided walk you’ll experience Norwich with fresh eyes and encounter the people and locations that inspired each writers’ work. Featuring pop-up readings plus print and audio installations across the city centre.

This literary walk has been created to celebrate the ten year anniversary of Norwich becoming England’s first UNESCO City of Literature. National Centre for Writing has commissioned five writers with a connection to the city to respond creatively to a particular place in Norwich or to an event in its history. These new works represent the breadth of new writing happening in, around and inspired by the city, across fiction and poetry. 

This event has sold out. To be added to the waiting list, please call the Festival box office on 01603 531800, or email boxoffice@nnfestival.org.uk stating how many tickets you would like.
