Visitors to the city can expect to see Gentleman’s Walk, London Street, St Gregory’s Green, Westlegate/Ber Street and new for 2019 (alternative weeks) Upper Close Green, Cathedral grounds and Riverside all buzzing with vibrant music and street entertainment.

Covent Garden street performer, William Sanchez will kick start proceedings at 16:40 on London Street where he will wow with his break dancing skills.  He will be joined at locations around the city with live music from Impilo, Alden Paterson & Dashwood and Sam Eagle.  Access to Music will also present six up and coming young musicians.

Stefan Gurney, Executive Director of Norwich BID said, “The Head Out, Not Home extravaganza is now in its seventh year and during that time has established itself as a major cultural entertainment festival in the city centre’s calendar and has a keen following!  We’re looking forward to welcoming the vast array of vibrant musicians and street performers to Norwich this summer.  Thursday evenings for the next 9 weeks are not to be missed, there will be plenty to see and do, remember to Head Out, Not Home and have some fun.”
