The Forum

Castle and Marketplace

The Forum is a landmark community building in the centre of Norwich. Open 363 days a year, there’s always something going on.

The Forum hosts a vibrant programme of events including exhibitions, food and craft markets, family activities, talks and local celebrations.

The Forum is home to Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library (one of the most popular public libraries in the UK), Pizza Express and Café Bar Marzano, The Forum Shop by Jarrolds and the Citizens’ Advice Bureau.

The Forum is managed by The Forum Trust, a self-financing organisation which hosts and organises four of the city’s most popular festivals – Norwich Science Festival, Norwich Games Festival, Norfolk Makers’ Festival and Norfolk Heritage Open Days.

There’s also a dedicated car park onsite and income is used to run The Forum’s programme of free events throughout the year.
