The fourth Norwich Sound + Vision festival will be held in October to bring some of the area’s most artistic and creative minds together. Organisers will be staging a free launch event on Monday, September 2 from 8.30pm at Norwich Arts Centre.
The night will feature brief presentations detailing what festival goers can expect from this year’s convention and a run down of the complete festival line-up.
Live music will be provided by Mat Riviere, Crystal Bats, folk collaboration Heart of a Dog, and winner of Next Big Thing 2012 Raevannan Husbandes.
