NAC Homecoming 2021 – Spring Weekenders
Norwich Arts Centre has been hibernating for long enough now and with new government guidance on COVID we can’t wait to get some intimate live gigs back on this May and June!
On Thursday 27, Friday 28 and Saturday 29 May, one of Norwich’s favourite comedy cabaret nights, Altered Feast returns, bigger and better than ever.
Friday 28 May Altered Feast II featuring Elf Lyons + Jim Campbell + more tbc
