Norfolk Businesses in Partnership

Philanthropic giving enabled the Hostry Festival to begin in 2010, and throughout its first decade it has been able to retain its unique individual style and tone thanks to the generosity of so many individuals.

The festival has commissioned over 100 original commissions and worked with over 1,000 volunteers. We have engaged with and promoted many thousands of Norfolk-based artists and projects, with events enjoyed by tens of thousands of people. The festival engages with people from all across the county yearly, from 5-year-olds to 85-year-olds.
