Enchanting Norwich

1754 was an exciting year for the City of Norwich. This was the year that the iconic Assembly House was built by Thomas Ivory, designed as the first fashionable venue for music, dancing and socialising that the city had seen. Over the next century, the Assembly House would become an international concert venue, hosting musicians such as Franz Liszt and Niccolò Paganini. Directed and curated by violinist Rachel Stroud, this programme aims to capture the sense of excitement - the musical buzz - that must have permeated Norwich during the year surrounding the House's grand opening in 1755.
