FANN17, the fifth biennial celebration of architecture in Norwich and Norfolk, organised by the Norfolk Association of Architects (NAA), the local branch of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) runs throughout October, culminating in the annual Norwich lecture on Thursday 2nd November.

The festival features the work and ideas of the county’s architects, and outstanding work in Norfolk by architects from further afield: buildings, interiors, landscape design and master planning.

The main exhibition, at The Forum, runs from Tuesday 3rd October to Friday 13th October, with other events in the city spread across October.

The 2017 Norwich Lecture at University of East Anglia, featuring Peter St John from Caruso St John Architects, winners of the 2016 Stirling Prize, is on Thursday 2nd November.

Other highlights include a PechaKucha evening at Cinema City, architecture-themed guided walking tours at UEA and, in Norwich city centre, Hat-itecture – children's activities at Norwich Castle Museum   Art Gallery during half-term – and Architecture on Film – classic films at Cinema City, in which architecture shapes dystopian landscapes.
