Dandifest 2017 celebrates the 50th anniversary of homosexuality becoming partially legalised in the UK. We’ll explore diversity, make a stand against violence and pledge solidarity with the bees.
Our main hub is once again St Margaret’s Church of Art on St Benedicts Street in the centre of Norwich. Between 24th April to 6th May 2017 you can visit us daily between 10am and 5pm to view new work by the Norwich Dandies and guest artists, including Hayley Hare, David Shenton, Falcon Scott and the Golden Bee Dew – an Australian collective which creates bee-themed work.
St Margaret’s is also where we’ll have the opening party on Tuesday 25th April, from 6 to 10pm. There’ll be lots of art, performances, poetry, music, as well a well-stocked bar. We hope to see you there.
The story of Dr Faustus is about a man who sells his soul to the Devil in return for eternal life. In Vince Laws version: A Very Queer Nazi Faust, Faust sells his soul in return for perfect health. Lots of awareness-raising about what this government is doing to disabled people. Fun, powerful and thought provoking.
The performance of Act One happens on the 25 April and will last about 15 mins max. The 25th also launches Dandifest 2017. Check out The Norwich Dandies for full info.
