The World Dumpling Championship


Norfolk’s own World Dumpling Championship is returning for a fourth exciting year.

Dumplings from all over the world are expected to be simmering on hobs at the Sanctuary Coffee Stop on Grove Walk on Saturday April 1st between 10am and 12pm.

This year, we are thrilled to announce that the Lord Mayor of Norwich will be on the judging panel. We have children’s workshops and a demonstration of apple dumpling making from two talented Norfolk dumpling makers. All this, and it’s free to come along! There is nothing to hold you back.

Do join us as a spectator or take part: this year’s World Dumpling Champion could be you! To get involved as a cook and win with your favourite dumpling recipe email [email protected]. We will send you a form and an information pack.

To find out more about the event go to and see what’s been going on.
