Save the dates and enjoy the buzz of the Covent Garden vibe in Norwich this summer! It’s perfect for families, couples, friends, and anyone who wants to enjoy the sunshine in the city with the welcome company of music, performance and more. Take in free live entertainment whilst exploring Norwich’s excellent array of shops, cafés, bars and restaurants, and get the most out of your summer.

Delivered by Norwich BID and NORCA & Sistema, Head Out, Not Home debuted in 2013, and has been an annual feature in the Norwich calendar since then (except for 2020). The event day was changed in 2021, and after great feedback it will be repeated on a Sunday afternoon in 2022 across six stages.  Running for seven weeks over the Summer of 2022, Head Out, Not Home includes all the best local talent, performers from across the country, and brilliant street entertainers. The performances include street theatre, jazz, blues, world music and rock!

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. Head Out, Not Home promotes the leisure offer in the city centre, and in 2019 increased footfall in the city centre by 12%.
