Norwich Arts Centre

Norwich Arts Centre is a small, independently run venue with charitable status (Charity No: 274803) situated close to the centre of Norwich.

Firmly established in the heart of Norwich's cultural community, NAC plays a key role in the delivery of a programme of live music, theatre, live art, comedy and live literature twinned with a commitment to creating opportunities for the development of new talent. The converted church (originally built in 1349) houses an auditorium able to cater for seated and standing events with many original features of St Swithin's Church intact. This allows NAC to undertake a diverse live programme covering rock and pop, world, jazz and folk music as well as rising comedy stars, performance opportunities, children's theatre and creative workshops.

In 2014 the venue received the prestigious NME Britain's Best Small Venue award, having previously been shortlisted for the award in 2011, 2012, 2013.
