Following the statement from Arts North Norfolk announcing that the charity is to close, Neil Powell, head teacher at North Walsham High School, said:

“We are sad to hear of the closure of Arts North Norfolk, which has made a great contribution to the cultural life of North Walsham since it was set up.

“Arts North Norfolk is one of a number of community groups which make use of the school’s Atrium facility, and I want to reassure those groups and the wider community that NWHS will continue to welcome such groups to the Atrium.

“Arts North Norfolk has been a focus for arts activity at the Atrium, but is not the only cultural organisation that uses the facility.

“We would like to encourage all community groups, including those with an arts focus, to join those already making use of the wonderful building we have here at the school, a building which is such an asset both for the students attending the school, and for the wider community.”
