Norwich Dandies

Norwich Rising

Celebrate May Day in Chapelfield Gardens and take part in Norwich Rising, a global initiative and movement demanding an end to violence against women. There'll be stalls, speakers and fun things abound – and of course the obligatory flash mob with their neatly choreographed surprises.
