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.

At Booja-Booja we’ve been making delicious vegan and organic treats, right here in Norfolk, since 1999. We’ve always been pioneers in the world of vegan confectionery.

Every chocolate truffle and tub of ice cream we make is vegan, organic, and dairy-free, as well as gluten-free and soya-free too.

At Norwich High School, we believe passionately in putting girls first. We give a girl the very best opportunities to find her strengths, explore the whole breadth of subject options, and tailor all that we do around her needs as she develops into a young woman.

We are a large enough school to provide rich opportunities, but yet small enough that every girl is known and valued. We are ambitious for every girl, whatever her interests, and we give her a wealth of opportunities to discover new avenues.
