Community Culture Club is a friendly arts, culture and heritage group that meets on Thursday mornings at the Museum of Norwich.

Sessions start in November( Thursday 16th November) and run for 10 weeks with a break for Christmas.

Each week we explore an object from the collection, try a craft and then have tea and biscuits.

10.30am to 12.30pm

Sessions are free! Places are limited. The sessions are open to all older people (65+), including those living with a dementia, carers, those with other long-term health conditions, and those who are lonely or isolated.

“I would describe my experience of the Community Culture Club as being really nurturing. Throughout the series the staff have supported all the participants to develop new connections with others as well as with local culture, to enhance their knowledge of objects and displays in the Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell, to express their creativity and develop resilience. I consider it to be one of the most joyful experiences I have had in a long time.” – previous participant

The crafts we do vary from week to week. There is a new theme each week and we do an activity that complements the themes. This can include painting, drawing, weaving, air dry clay, chocolate tasting, making pomanders, self-portraits creations, making tiny zines. A bit of everything! We try and make each session as sensory as possible – something to taste, things to touch, things to see, stories to hear, and things to smell!
