Lord Mayor’s Celebration 2022

Friday 1 to Sunday 3 July

Calling all kings and queens.... The crown jewel in the city’s event calendar is back! This year’s theme is ‘kings and queens’, and we’re planning a right royal knees up to celebrate all things regal, from our very own Queen of Iceni to Bimini Bon Boulash, and everyone in between. 

The lineup for 2022 includes the first ever Community Showcase on The Forum Stage, a skate park in the city centre and, of course, the beloved Lord Mayor’s Procession.

Gentleman’s Walk will become Norwich’s ‘Royal Mile’, with street theatre and performance from the regal to ridiculous lining the street.

There will also be a Friday night paint party, traditional fun fair, street food and music to enjoy in Chapelfield Gardens.

Enjoy the endless emerging in the area at The Forum Stage, Lost River Stage and Maui Waui Stage, as well as the sounds of the Norwich Pavement Collective - some of the city's best buskers. Sunday sees the return of the Lanes Fayre and Great Norwich Duck Race, as well as another day of fun in Chapelfield Gardens.

See the list of entertainment and plan your weekend!
