Free street entertainment is still bringing added life to late-night shopping in Norwich – and is set to continue until mid-September.
Various street acts have been entertaining shoppers in the city on Thursday evenings in recent weeks as part of a project from the Norwich Business Improvement District (BID).
Norwich BID wanted to try to create more of a fun atmosphere to Thursday evenings to try to attract more shoppers into the city.
On Thursday night, the project brought salsa dancing to Gentleman’s Walk, comedy dance act Faces of Disco to Timberhill and a Batak Wall, a game where people try to hit randomly illuminated lights, to St George Street, outside Delaney. Next Thursday, will see a performer called Nick bring his act up from Covent Garden in London, which can include balancing on a free standing ladder and juggling machete knives whilst reciting Shakespeare.
He will be performing outside Delaney’s at 5pm, 6.30pm and 8pm.
In Timberhill there will be a crime scene investigation workshop, teaching how to take fingerprints and “classify” them with experienced professionals, while in Gentleman’s Walk Tin House’s Ship of Fools will entertain crowds with stories from the sea, mad cap routines and general mayhem.
The entertainment continues until September 22.
