The Complete Collection

All Margaret Seaman's textile installations are on show in a never-to-be-repeated exhibition in The Forum's Lower Gallery. Meet the charity knitter who has delighted two Queens, one princess, Darcy Bussell, Grayson Perry and Rod Stewart!

Self portraits and life goals

Creative activity and linking up with people and projects in your community can help reduce the risk of developing dementia. The Festival has been working with groups in the Norwich area, exploring healthy life choices and creating new artwork for the 2024 Festival.
