    The Forum Trust is the independent, self-financing charitable organisation which manages The Forum building and which is responsible for The Forum’s continued growth and development.

    The Trust works with a broad range of partners - businesses, organisations and community groups - to provide new experiences and opportunities both in and around the building and in communities across Norfolk and the Eastern Region.

    The Forum Trust is also responsible for the on-going maintenance, staffing and customer care in and around the building. The Trust is independent and self-financing and the commercial activities which help to fund its work are:

    • Income from The Forum Car Park, which is underneath the building
    • Rental income collected from Forum tenant organisations, such as the BBC and PizzaExpress
    • Income generated from hiring out The Forum's space, such as the Atrium, the Auditorium and outside on Millennium Plain
    • Income from advertising and promotional opportunities, including The Forum Event Guide

    The Forum is a unique building run by a full time Forum Trust Team, which works together to manage this eclectic mix of commercial activity and community partnership projects. The Forum Trust reports to a Board of Trustees, which oversees the Trust’s work and its strategic development.
