About us

Centenary 2023

The Society will celebrate its centenary in 2023. Plans are underway to recognise this important milestone with a programme of events, activities and commemorative output as an opportunity for engaging with both members and the wider general public.

Updates and opportunities for getting involved in our centenary plans will be posted on this page as they are released.


VOLUNTEER TO HELP

The Society will need volunteers to help with our Centenary activities. At this stage, the Centenary Planning Group is particularly looking for members who can help with the following:

- Competition operations: help us arrange and run an art competition for children!

- Media relations: help us make sure we get media coverage of our activities either as a media contact or by writing articles for publication.

If you're interested in helping with either of these areas, or have any questions about what volunteering might involve please do get in touch to discuss at admin@thenorwichsociety.org.uk.

NOMINATE A PLAQUE

As part of the Society’s programme of activities to mark our centenary, we are intending to install a special series of commemorative plaques. We are particularly looking to recognise lesser-known or previously overlooked aspects of the city’s history, including places, people and stories. They do not have to be connected to The Norwich Society.

To put forward a suggestion for a plaque, please follow the process on this form.

SUBMIT A PHOTOGRAPH

The Society has compiled a list of 100 special places in Norwich, many of which The Norwich Society has had some involvement with in protecting, restoring or otherwise championing. Norwich 100 will form a key part of the centenary celebrations, including an exhibition, publication, social media posts and press outreach. To help us with documenting all these places, we are looking for help from our members for the photography aspect of the project.

To find out more about the places and guidelines for taking and submitting photographs, please see the attached guide.
