The Hostry Festival is a cultural festival held each year at Norwich Cathedral. It is a not-for-profit community interest project, offering a vast range of opportunities for volunteers both on stage and behind the scenes.

In 2021, it celebrates its 10th anniversary, a decade which has seen more than one hundred projects and events commissioned, including Total Ensemble Theatre Company, Paint Out Norwich, The African Choir of Norfolk, and the Norfolk Arts Awards, co-hosted with UEA at the Sainsbury Centre


Since 2018, UEA has been the principal sponsor. CreativeUEA works to support the promotion of this inclusive celebration of arts and culture from across Norfolk, through participation by staff, students and graduates in performances and event management.
