Head Out, Not Home

Every Thursday evening (16:40 - 20:00), between 4 July - 29 August 2019 Norwich BID delivered free early evening entertainment across multiple city centre locations: London Street, Westlegate, Gentleman's Walk, St Gregory's Green, Riverside and Cathedral grounds.  

Building on the success of previous years, our free summer events programme returned offering great free family entertainment.  Every Thursday evening from the start of July to the end of August, the streets of Norwich came alive with Covent Garden street performers and vibrant live music from local bands and musicians.

The campaign generates a huge amount of interest and increases footfall in the city centre by 12%.

The Head Out, Not Home campaign promotes the leisure offer in the city centre, including bars, restaurants and theatres to provide growth, a coordinated approach and value to city centre users in the early evening.  2019 saw a huge amount of interest resulting in an increase of city centre footfall by 12%.

Head Out, Not Home encourages visitors to take in free live music and entertainment whilst exploring Norwich’s excellent array of shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. There are numerous car parks offering discounted and evening flat rates.

Don't miss a thing!
