Norfolk Community Arts offers a range of opportunities to experience or get involved in arts and culture. Some are open access and some are focused around programmes and projects.

Sistema Norwich

In partnership with Norfolk Music Hub, we offer children and young people the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument and take part in an orchestra, as part of making instrumental music accessible to everyone and changing lives through music.
