Tightrope Extravaganza Opens Norfolk and Norwich Festival

As the sun went down over Norwich on Friday 10th May, we watched eagerly as high-wire circus artist Chris Bullzini opened the Norfolk and Norwich Festival with an incredible aerial walk from Jarrolds to The Forum.

During the nail-biting 25 minute show Mr Bullzini (a professional tightrope walker, AKA a funambulist) meticulously walked across the 230m tightrope which was 20m above Norwich's historic market to a city packed with spectators stunned and amazed.

This truly breathtaking opening not only fills us with pride, but has left us feeling very excited to see what this year holds for the Norfolk and Norwich Festival!
