“One of the focal point of event in Norwich”
Reviewed 7 July 2012

A replacement for the libary that burnt down a couple of decades ago.
Iconic building? Yeah I'd say so. Coffee, Pizza, Libary and a venue for many art exhibitions.

“Free arts events during the summer”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

Check the programme out via FB or online via Forum Trust. Cafes inside can be a tad over-priced.
