Each summer since 2011 Waveney & Blyth Arts has organised a programme of events that celebrate the special character of this area through a variety of creative media to encourage visitors and local people to experience their surroundings more vividly, and discover what makes it unique.
We are grateful to Geoffrey Watling Charity and Halesworth & Blyth Valley Partnership for support of the 2019 summer programme, and to Norfolk County Council for their support of the Sensing Nature Ensemble of visually impaired musicians.
In celebration of the insects that share our planet, and that pollinate our orchards, and the flowers that have disappeared, during 2019 we had many events on the theme of Bugs & Blossoms, and this theme will be continued into 2020.
The 2019 programme is over and, as usual, we will take a break over the winter months with just occasional events whilst we plan the 2020 programme of activities. There are lots of great ideas bubbling away and some exciting developments taking shape.
If you would like to get involved in organising events contact us via [email protected] or your local co-ordinator (see footer for details).
Our aim is for as many people as possible to enjoy these events so prices are kept as low as possible with under 18s having free access to most events. To enable wheelchair users and other people with special access needs to take part we have a Williams Tour Guide system available at all walks and workshops (for people with some hearing loss and hearing-aid users), a British Sign Language version of the Curator’s tour around the Sculpture Trail, trained guides to assist people with sight loss and wheelchair access wherever we can.
If you have any queries concerning access and facilities contact [email protected] or call 07415 168806 for more information.
