UPCOMING EVENTS

THE WANDERER’S JOURNEY

The Forum Norwich – Auditorium
Friday 6th April from 6pm to 7:30pm

The tradition of craftsman’s ‘journey’ is an ancient one, but it is still alive and relevant today. At any point thousands of young people are wandering far and wide across Europe and beyond, earning and learning as they go. With tools in hand, generations have travelled afar and now the stonemason’s Guild of St Stephen & St George offer you authentic memories from those who have actually undertaken ‘the journey’, together with stories inspired by it.
