The perfect setting for public events, markets and fairs.

Located in one of Norwich’s busiest pedestrianised areas our outside spaces are ideal for public events.  The Forum’s outside spaces can be booked individually or all together. 

The Amphitheatre on Millennium Plain is used for large-scale extravaganzas, such as the Norfolk and Norwich Festival’s opening night, through to smaller events such charity promotions and markets.  

Upper Millennium Plain is the undercover space immediately in front of The Forum entrance ideal for smaller outdoor stands and performances.   

The area between The Forum and Theatre Street, called Theatre Plain, is excellent for markets and fairs. 

Our outside spaces are ideal for:

  • Food and craft fairs and markets

  • Community celebrations 

  • Outdoor performances

  • Charity promotions  

  • Roadshows   

Our Venue Hire prices will be increasing from 1 June 2024. Bookings confirmed before 1 June will be charged at the current rate.
