A kaleidoscope of live music, performance, comedy and more is set to entertain audiences at Norwich Arts Centre during the city venue’s autumn season.
Kelly Robb, marketing officer for the St Benedicts Street venue, said: “The autumn season is a busy and exciting time for us with a diverse programme of national and international music, performance and comedy. We’re also very proud to be hosting cutting-edge work by Norwich writers and artists as part of our performance and live art programme.”
September’s music highlights include singer-songwriter Luke Sital-Singh, described as a British Bon Iver, and East-West opera Sukanya. British singer-songwriter Jo Harman and Company will present a soul-fuelled musical journey and Lulo Reinhardt will perform Gypsy folk. October will see LA-based collective Fool’s Gold weave together western pop with African rhythms, and Wille and the Bandits will play rock, world, blues and roots. During the Norwich Sound and Vision festival acts will include psych-rockers The Wytches, glam-tinged rockers Telegram, and London quartet Childhood, and later in the month there will be a two-day Fine City Blues Explosion.
The performance and live art programme includes Norwich artist Tamsin Flower’s debut show MENTAL Play, a dark comedy about an unlikely peer group, while literary duo Hannah Walker and Chris Thorpe are returning with their show I Wish I Was Lonely. UEA lecturer Steve Waters will present In a Vulnerable Place, a moving monologue about changing climate, meanwhile The Shipwrecked House will see poet Claire Trévien navigate a shifting maritime landscape, and in If These Spasms Could Speak actor Robert Softley will talk openly about disability.
Comic Celia Pacquola will bring some lighthearted comedy with Let Me Know How It All Works Out, and Tom Marshman’s family show Let’s Talk About Bambi is described as a skip through the forest suitable for ages seven and above.
