Norwich 100: Caring for the past and future
The Forum Trust Ltd, The Forum, Millennium Plain, Norwich, Norfolk, NR2 1TF
Visit this photographic exhibition in The Forum, which will showcase 100 places in Norwich, to celebrate the centenary of The Norwich Society. Each place will represent our activities and campaigning over the decades.
The threat to Bishop Bridge in 1923 prompted the founding of The Norwich Society to help protect Norwich’s historic environment and encourage new development that will be worthy of our fine city.
In addition to this photographic exhibition, the Norwich Society’s programme in The Forum includes two talks on the threat to some of our key historic buildings that led to the Norwich Society being established, and some slideshows focusing on aspects of Norwich history. A key element will be the People’s Choice, which will feature places that Norwich people value or hold particularly dear. Visitors to the exhibition will have the opportunity to nominate their own choices.
The Norwich Society is an independent community-based charity, supporting the preservation, development and improvement of features of historic interest of our city. We also use the expertise of architects, town planners, surveyors and other industry professionals within our committees to comment on significant planning decisions in the area on behalf of the public. And we encourage exploration and enjoyment of Norwich’s history through a range of talks, walks and other events, as well as regular publications.
From saving the historic Elm Hill area from demolition in the 1920s, to recent campaigning for better development of the Anglia Square site, we’ve been championing the built environment and public spaces in Norwich and celebrating the city’s unique character and beauty since 1923.
This event took place in September 2023 and the entry is now archived.
