Norwich, have you got talent? - 12 June to 28 August

Can you sing, can you dance, can you perform? Want your chance to perform on a local stage over the summer? That is the question Norwich Business Improvement District (BID) is asking in a quest to find new and exciting local talent as part of their Head Out, Not Home summer events programme.

Building on the success of last year’s Head Out, Not Home free summer events programme, Norwich BID is now looking for local performers and groups to take to the stage this summer. This is a fantastic opportunity for budding local performers to showcase their talent and get involved.

Running from 12 June until 28 August, Head Out, Not Home will see the return of Covent Garden street entertainers, music, street theatre and, new for 2014, the ‘Norwich’s Got Talent stage’ dedicated to showcasing local acts. Anyone can apply to take part and auditions take place on 26 and 27 April at The Garage and NORCA.

The wonder of birds, Norwich Castle - 22 May to 14 Sept

The Wonder of Birds will explore the cultural impact of birds upon humankind. Eliciting a wide range of emotions from awe to fear, from pleasure to cruelty, birds have intrigued humanity since the earliest of times.

The exhibition will span the centuries and will include the arts, natural history, archaeology, fashion and social history, with loans from local and national collections. Comprising six sections, each will focus on a different aspect of birds, their meanings and our relationships with them.

Some 220 works by major artists and illustrators, historical and contemporary, will be on show and the exhibition will examine local, national and international issues.
