City centre venue OPEN Norwich is celebrating Springfest in Norwich!

The iconic building at the heart of Norwich on Bank Plain will be transformed next March into a global drinks, food and entertainment venue featuring the very best from five continents – Europe, Asia, The Americas, Australasia and Africa.

Springfest will be running on the weekend of Friday 23rd & Saturday 24th March 2018, with three sessions during this period. The Friday evening session will open the event before two further sessions on the Saturday afternoon and evening which will help bring the curtain down on this inaugural drinks, food and entertainment extravaganza.

The event will also be incorporating a spring version of Oktoberfest - the hugely popular Bavarian festival recently held at OPEN.  There will be a wide selection of well-known and lesser-known Bavarian and other world beers and cocktails, a diverse array of quality Street Food and first-class live entertainment. Springfest will simply be one of the biggest one-off Food & Drink celebrations ever seen in our Fine City.

Those attending can even take full advantage of a World Spirits lounge, allowing guests to sample unique drinks with a global flavour.

Entertainment will be provided by the brilliant Bavarian Strollers who will be repeating their starring performance at Oktoberfest alongside The Mariachis – famed for their Doritos TV advert.

John Gordon-Saker, Chief Executive for OPEN said “Springfest is one more in a number of different style events that we are lining up for 2018 to complement our eclectic programme of live music, awards ceremonies and conferences with money raised from the event being donated to the Open Youth Trust, enabling the charity to offer a diverse range of activities, most of which are free to attend, for young people aged from 7 to 25.

A limited number of VIP tickets with reserved stage side seating, complimentary food and drink and table service are also available.
