We Are Norwich to hold free music and poetry event

The anti-racist coalition ‘We Are Norwich’ will be hosting a free music and poetry event later this month.

The group formed in November 2012 in opposition to the first ever march of the English Defence League in Norwich, in which they successfully outnumbered the far-right group 6:1.

The campaign was backed by over 20 local organisations, including the Union of UEA Students, Norwich Pride and Chapelfield Mosque. A year on, spokesman Nick O’Brien says that, “people have expressed a desire to keep We Are Norwich going… to do all we can to prove that all kinds of people are welcomed here.”

The evening will feature performances by poet and spoken word artist Hollie McNish, and local music acts the Piratones, Dandelion and the Rockets, and Banana Moon. The event will take place at the Blueberry Music House in Cowgate, close to Anglia Square, on Thursday 28 November from 7pm. There is no attendance charge for the evening, but donations will be accepted.
