Norwich, a Love Story

Sunday 23/06/24

Writer, theatre-maker and storyteller John Osborne has created a brand-new show in celebration of Norwich.


In recognition of two decades spent in this fine city, the creator of cult-hit John Peel’s Shed and Sky 1’s After Hours brings this special show to First Light Festival. Norwich: A Love Story saunters through the city, relishing the bustle of the marketplace, the timeless beauty of the cathedral, the indispensable items available in Thorne’s and the memories of when there used to be trams. Set amongst these cobbled streets and familiar haunts, John unfurls a love-story which celebrates Norwich’s rich history, its most-loved landmarks and its hospitality, especially to strangers.
