NNF di­rec­tor steps down

EDP Norfolk - - Inside -

This year’s Nor­folk and Nor­wich Fes­ti­val will be the last for di­rec­tor Wil­liam Galin­sky, who is step­ping down af­ter seven years. Mr Galin­sky (left) is pass­ing on the ba­ton to al­low him to “catch a breath.”

“Be­ing artis­tic di­rec­tor of NNF has been the most bril­liant ad­ven­ture - at times, it has made me feel like Willy Wonka. From Robert Wil­son’s Walk­ing along the

beaches and dunes at Holkham, to Wild­work’s Wolf’s Child in the forests of Fel­brigg Hall, to a card­board St Peter Man­croft built by thou­sands of vol­un­teers, the fes­ti­val has given me the op­por­tu­nity to bring the au­di­ences and com­mu­ni­ties of Nor­wich and Nor­folk ex­pe­ri­ences be­yond an artis­tic di­rec­tor’s wildest dreams,” he said.

His swan song fes­ti­val line-up in­cludes high­lights like Luke Jer­ram’s Mu­seum of the Moon which will see a huge in­flat­able moon and an out-of-this-world sound­scape out­side the Fo­rum in Nor­wich, the Ad­nams Spiegel­tent, a 10-hour choral sleep­over with The Voice Project at the Assem­bly House in Nor­wich, the vir­tual re­al­ity VR Play­ground ex­pe­ri­ence which will move around the city, and the chance to hop aboard a bus for the show Rear View. This year’s fes­ti­val is May 12- 28. www.nn­fes­ti­val.org.uk
