Welcome to the Hostry Festival 2018

The Autumn Festival of Norfolk

Click Here to download the 2017 Hostry Festival brochure.

Since 2010 the festival has provided an umbrella for creatives to develop projects under. We commission bespoke original works across the board, with people from all over Norfolk.

2017 again raised the profile for the project, with our Central Production gaining extraordinary feedback,

and our core projects The Norfolk Arts Awards, Total Ensemble Theatre Company and Paint Out Norwich all receiving praise for the work they delivered.

The full details about what’s on offer this Autumn will be announced on this website, plus in our festival brochure as well as through our media partners the Eastern Daily Press, Norfolk Magazine and BBC Radio Norfolk in early July.

The Hostry Festival is a Not For Profit, Community Interest Project and we work with well over 100 volunteers each year. If you’d like to be on the team for 2018, we’d love to hear from you. info@hostryfestival.org

On behalf of Co-founder and Executive Producer Peter Barrow, our Sponsors, Patrons and Supporters, Trusts, Charities, Individuals, and our Media Partners, I look forward to welcoming you at this year’s Autumn Festival Of Norfolk, 15th – 28th October.

All best wishes,
Stash Kirkbride
