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. In 2014 it was also honoured with both a EDP People’s Choice Award for best small to mid-scale venue, festival or organisation and the Dr Frank Bates Musical Theatre and Dance Award.

  • Prefect venue, wonderful staff, amazing location. A band can't deside more than this
  • An amazing music venue which hosts an incredible variety of shows. From music to comedy, film to conferences and talks. The gallery space is small but great and the bar has a good range of drinks. Be sure to check out their craft and zone markets and visit the garden BBQ in the summer. Would also highly recommend their mulled cider in the winter. Love this place!
