Upcoming events

We have many events taking place throughout the year, organised both by the charity and by members of staff, patients and other groups and individuals. As a result of Covid-19, many of our events are being held “virtually”.

Foundation Day

Find out about how our hospital saw its first patients in 1772 and how we have changed over time serving Norfolk communities for 250 years. This is a major milestone which will be celebrated throughout 2022 with our local community.

There is no need to book for this event, just turn up at a time to suit you and your family.

There are lots of free activities and there will be no charge for parking in the hospital car park (charges still apply in the public car park). Children aged under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Take a tour of our history, find out how we  save lives, enjoy fun and games and help to raise money for the N&N Hospitals Charity.

Try your hand at pathology with our lab staff, see how we treat heart conditions and learn more about our children’s theatres. Hear about food and health research, see how the gut works and meet the “inflatable poo”!

Looking for career opportunities?  Find out more about working at the hospital in nearly 100 professions, fulltime, part-time or temporary roles. 

See our display of old nursing uniforms and historical objects, wartime and vintage vehicles, with a walk through our 250 year history.

RunNorwich 2022

Last year, the Norwich City Community Sports Foundation took the difficult decision to cancel Run Norwich because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We know many of our supporters were looking forward to taking part in the race while raising money for the hospital, and the hospital itself had a team of runners who were raising money for the Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital.

We are looking forward to coming together next year for this fantastic event and anyone who gets their own place when they are released and would like to support us, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Sunday, July 31

Bishop’s House Open Garden

In celebration of 250 Years of Philanthropy, N&N Hospitals Charity will be hosting the annual Bishop’s House Open Garden on Sunday, July 31 from 1pm until  4:30pm (last entry 4pm).

The garden is one of Norwich’s hidden secrets in the city centre and there has been a garden of sorts since around 1100 AD when Bishop de Losinga began to build the cathedral and palace.

The historic private four-acre formal city centre garden has belonged to the Bishops of Norwich for more than 900 years.

The event will include refreshments, cakes, plant sale, live music from the Saxonettes and much more.

There is a small pay and display car park outside the entrance and a larger pay and display car park a few further yards down, just off Bishopgate and opposite the Adam and Eve pub.

Entry is £5 on the gate or online https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/bishops-house-open-garden-norwich-tickets-276573146727
