PopUp Norwich opportunity coming to Norwich city centre

Following expressions of interest from local businesses, start-ups, entrepreneurs and crafters, Norwich Business Improvement District (BID) are now offering interested parties the opportunity to visit and preview a PopUp space in Norwich city centre.

The PopUp space which used to house Maplin at 7A Castle House on Castle Meadow will be available to view on Thursday 18 April from 16:00 to 18:00. 

Members of the Norwich BID team will be on hand to answer any questions.  Anyone interested in viewing the space or wishes to find out more about PopUp Norwich should email  [email protected].

The PopUp Norwich store is scheduled to open on the Spring Bank Holiday W/E, Saturday 25 May.  Change over day will normally be Mondays, however those booking for the inaugural week will receive two extra days free of charge.

PopUp Norwich is an exciting new opportunity for local businesses to test out an idea, build their brand and make sales without the cost and commitment of a permanent city centre lease.  To rent the space would cost only £240 per week which includes electricity, WiFi and business rates etc.

Martin Blackwell, Business and Operations Manager, Norwich BID said, “Popups have become a 21st century model for retailing, and we are excited to offer this opportunity to Norwich startups. PopUp Norwich provides a low cost and low risk opportunity for entrepreneurs to experiment and test the market.  We look forward to meeting interested parties and seeing the current empty unit on Castle Meadow transformed by new and innovative traders”.
