Norwich is a UNESCO City of Literature. Celebrate the writers who have lived in the city and those who have written about Norwich on this walking tour, which starts outside The Forum and ends at the Maids Head Hotel with a cup of tea or coffee.

Listen to readings and hear stories about writers from Julian of Norwich to Parson Woodforde, Amelia Opie, Harriet Martineau, Anna Sewell, JB Priestley, Ian McEwan and more. There’s Shakespeare at the Erpingham Gate, the tale of Will Kemp’s ‘Nine Days Wonder’ at the Maddermarket, excerpts from the Paston Letters and the proud history of libraries, newspapers and booksellers in the city, including Jarrold which celebrated their 250th anniversary in 2020.
