2017 Graduations

We saw well over 1,700 Norfolk children graduate in 2017. Last year was particularly exciting, with ten children collecting their certificate for 1,000 hours, which is our highest number yet.  We have been supported by some excellent new venues such as:

  • Dragon Hall, Norwich
  • Stage 2, Theatre Royal
  • Millennium Library
  • Catton Grove Primary
  • Green Britain Centre
  • Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse

As well as continuing to work with wonderful venues such as:

  • University of East Anglia
  • College of West Anglia
  • Great Yarmouth College
  • Norwich City Football Club

At our summer graduations we saw the wonderful Mad Science Anglian Water show and had special guests, including Alexander Gordon Smith who is a fantastic children's author and Jon Holland from Get Norfolk Reading.

Our autumn graduations were supported by Dr Mandy Hartley from The Little Story Telling Company and Diane Ivory from Forensic Minds who ran exciting shows for our graduates.
We will soon be announcing our winter graduation dates, which will be held during February/March 2018.
