Flintspiration runs from Saturday, April 29
to Monday, May 1, with tours, trails, talks, processions, displays, exhibitions, craft demonstrations, street theatre, music guided walks, children’s games and activities – and beer and dancing too.
It is being organised by Norwich Historic Churches Trust, with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund, and will include activities inside churches, outside churches, and across a city centre shaped by churches.
Fifty years ago the Diocese of Norwich reviewed the number of parish churches in the city centre and many of those which could no longer be used for worship are now looked after by the Norwich Historic Churches Trust.
The buildings have become art galleries, workshops, bookshops, dance and drama schools, theatres and cafes.
Flintspiration includes 18 churches, as well as the still-vibrant city centre parish churches, and churches looked after by the national Churches Conservation Trust charity. Other organisations involved include the University of East Anglia research project The Medieval Churches of Norwich and the diocese of Norwich.
