Creativity, Diversity, Sustainability - 2 October 2010
Join the street festival with a difference! Come to the hub of the Creative Quarter and experience the most diverse neighbourhood in the city, learn about the history of the street, sample the unique collection of shops, meet other residents and make lasting connections.
The day includes an array of activities including performances by neighbourhood musicians (Norwich Parkour and Taiko drummers have confirmed they'll appear), workshops with local artists and performers, and a fashion parade using vintage and second-hand clothes. There will also be a chance to start Christmas shopping with stalls of local crafts as well as all the brilliant quirky and practical shops along the street and in Anglia Square.
The event is spearheaded by members of Transition Norwich who wanted to find a fun way for community members to meet each other, celebrate the range of cultural backgrounds we represent, and enjoy the opportunity to live more sustainably by shopping locally, buying second-hand and making friends locally.
