230 metre Ropewalker opens the Norfolk and Norwich Festival 2019

The Norfolk and Norwich Festival launches tonight!

Visit Britain lists the festival as one of the best annual events in Britain in 2019 and describe it as: “The internationally renowned Norfolk and Norwich Festival is a highlight of the region’s cultural calendar. Held over 17 packed days in various locations across the county, the festival presents more than 100 performances in a superb line-up of companies and ensembles from all over the world. There’s music, theatre, dance, circus and visual arts as well as a host of spectacular free outdoor events and plenty of opportunities to get involved in the range of festival workshops.”

Tonight Norwich will see huge crowds gather to witness Chris Bullzini walking across a 230 metre tight rope from the top of Jarrold, across the iconic Norwich Market to the top of The Forum.

Last night was the dress rehearsal for the opening event which, despite windy conditions, all proceeded smoothly. HexCam was involved in the project and captured some aerial footage of the rehearsal for the organisers in cooperation with Eye Film.
