Norwich Dragon Festival 2009

July 15, 2008

We are currently working with the Norwich Education Network (NEN) on the first ever Norwich Dragon Festival, a series of educational events aimed at celebrating the theme of the dragon and its importance to the city over the centuries.

The festival will celebrate the city’s cultural heritage and engage with local schools, families and the wider community and tourists.  

The festival will be aimed at families, local schools, the wider community and tourists and will involve exhibitions, performances, story-telling, a trail, art and craft activities, films, competitions and more across many city centre venues. Dragons feature in the legends of many cultures around the world and the festival will reflect this with cross-cultural elements involving the local Polish and Chinese communities too.

It will run for three weeks next year from 2 February 2009 – 22 February 2009 (the final week being half-term).

    Hi. Came across your site when posting on my blog about the Dragon Festival. Will provide a link to your blog as well. I used to be an archaeologist so it was a nice surprise to come across your excellent blog. Looking forward to the Dragon Festival, as is my little 4 year old son. Hopefully the first of many. 🙂
