Norwich Dragon Festival 2014!

Monday 10th February sees the start of two weeks of dragon-related events and activities as the Norwich Dragon Festival returns to our fine city for the third time, running until Sunday 23rd February. From its debut outing in 2009 to a successful return in 2011, the festival- organised by Norwich’s Heritage Economic and Regeneration Trust (HEART)- celebrates the mythical creature whose close ties with the city have existed since the Middle Ages.

A full programme of events can be viewed here on the official festival website- there’s lots to see and do, so definitely take a look and plan what kind of fun you could get up to (especially over half term!) In the mean time, we’ve put together a list of dragon-themed books inspired by the creature who has a significant role in our city’s heritage!
