After four unforgettable years, having made a reputation for itself stronger than a carnival master’s daughter on the local village boys, the Norwich Body Art Festival returns to the social tattooing calendar for its fifth year.
The dates have been announced as the 17th and 18th August 2013, and we have a brand new festival home at OPEN, Norwich, the stunningly reimagined banking hall turned venue extraordinaire. The new venue is still smack bang in Norwich city centre, and you can take a virtual tour of the building here…
—- In other important news, even though our venue has stepped up a giant-sized notch, we’re keeping things grounded at last year’s prices! —-
Day Pass (Sat or Sun): £10 for adults, £5 for under 16s (accompanied by adults) and under 5s free.
Weekend Pass: £17.50 for adults, £7.50 for under 16s (accompanied by adults) and under 5s free.
—- The event runs from 12pm – 8pm daily, although you may want to get there early if you haven’t bought a ticket, as previous years have sold out! —-
Developments and bookings will come thick and fast now, so keep an eye on this site and our Facebook / Twitter pages for more info. The city of Norwich has become a cultural and musical focal point for people throughout Norfolk and surrounding areas over the years. The City is seeing a growing population of budding tattoo and body modification enthusiasts. The festival aims to show people that the best artists may hold a tattoo machine instead of a paintbrush and the best canvases may be your own skin.
It’ll be two days of tattooists doing what they do best! In addition to this there will be trade stands showcasing everything from fashion to art, some very interesting stage and street performers, an awards ceremony and even a graffiti jam! Artists will be confirmed shortly, so check our website, Facebook or Twitter pages.
