This will be followed by an art exhibition of over 150 paintings until 28th October at the Norwich Cathedral Hostry each day.

We have a number of events in East Anglia before and during Paint Out Norwich to whet your appetite including several Paint Out days May-Sep in Suffolk & Norfolk with opportunities to paint historical changing rural and urban landscapes as we seek to use Paint Out events to document our changing environment.
Locations for painting will include the bustling market – one of the oldest and certainly the largest in the UK, serene medieval Cathedral quarter including film-featured cobbled Elm Hill, the soon-to-change 1960s urban landscape of Anglia Square, its intact Norman Castle (and art gallery housing the Norwich School of Painters collection, paintings are also held by the TATE, Colman family and Mandell’s Gallery, the proprietor of which is one of the judges this year), and Norwich Lanes by night. There will also be the opportunity to paint the historic Colman’s factory site before Unilever close operations there.
