The line up for the Norfolk and Norwich Festival 2013 has been announced including music, arts and big outdoor family events.

This year the festival will span 17 days, hosting 165 performances of 75 shows in 29 different venues.

'This is a programme packed with new commissions, world and Uk premiers: from the local to the international, from the large scale to the intimate' said Artistic Director William Galinsky.  ' The Festival encourages a sense of community through a celebration of art and culture, people and place while also encouraging cultural tourism and bringing extra visitors into the city and the county.  Alongside our dedication to bringing the world's best artists to the region, we also aim to inspire our own artists to make work that can hold its own on the world stage.'
