Norwich Arts Centre, Norwich

(4.4/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Norwich Arts Centre is an independently run venue with charitable status (Charity No: 274803) situated close to the centre of Norwich. NAC is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation.

Firmly established in the heart of Norwich’s cultural community, NAC delivers a programme of live music, live art, comedy, live literature and theatre twinned with a commitment to creating opportunities for the development of new talent.

The converted church (originally built in 1349) houses an auditorium able to cater for seated and standing events with many original features of St Swithin’s Church in tact. This allows NAC to undertake a live programme covering all types of music as well as rising comedy, performance, children’s theatre and creative workshops.

In 2014 the venue received the prestigious NME Britain’s Best Small Venue award, having previously been shortlisted for the award in 2011, 2012, 2013.

  • Classic venue, smells a bit but hey it is an ancient church ;) great staff and beer + art too!!
  • Great gig venue for the city. Unique building with equally unique atmosphere, friendly and welcoming. Diverse range of bands, comedy acts and exhibition events a regularly staged here throughout the year. Norwich, you're spoiling us!
  • Excellent live entertainment venue. Recently won best in Britain award. Varied acts. A lot to choose from.
  • They have some great bands. Best small venue in Norwich
  • My favourite Norwich Venue, it just feels like home! A beautiful setting with an always diverse, wide ranging set of live music, comedy and exhibition events. Norwich wouldn't be Norwich without it, in fact, if it closed I'm 99% sure I'd move.
