Norwich cultural stars set for success at Norfolk event

August 11, 2017 by  

The Norfolk Arts Awards (NAA) is likely to recognise some of Norwich’s cultural talent later this year.

The sponsor of the Business and the Arts Award is Fosters Solicitor this time around, and the two finalists in this category of the NAA both have a strong Norwich connection.

The Shoe Factory Social Club is an arts venue within the city, while Marion Catlin has produced cultural guides to the place. Business card printing in Norwich can be used to help promote local cultural entrepreneurs.

The NAA does not just showcase the cultural movers and shakers of Norwich. In fact, the awards started back in 2012 with the aim of highlighting the vibrancy of the sector on a county basis. Event founder Stash Kirkbride told the Norfolk Eastern Daily Press:

“The Norfolk Arts Awards are about celebrating people and projects in Norfolk that make a difference to all of our lives culturally throughout the year.”

Norwich City College (NCC) is the current sponsor of the award for theatre. One finalist is Jo Edye who has been involved in drama for many years. The other contender is Vic Young, who has secured charitable status for Norwich’s Great Hall Theatre Company.

The event is scheduled to take place in late October. It will be held during the course of the Hostry Festival and Norwich Cathedral shall provide the venue.
