Getting to Number 47 St Giles

posted 7 Sep 2016, 14:50 by Harvest Moon Festival   [ updated 7 Sep 2016, 14:58 ]

As we are moving to a brand new location this year we wanted to let you all know exactly where we are going to be and how to get there.

No 47 St Giles in in the heart of Norwich in a beautiful Georgian building.  This Grade 2 listed building hosts conferences, weddings, dinners and celebrations.  We have the whole building on September 24th from the beautiful rose garden to the Le Strange room.

St Giles is just west of Norwich Market Place, on foot you walk up the hill past Tescos Metro and the Guildhall.

By Train, come to Norwich train station, walk up Prince of Whales Road, cross the market and walk up the hill past the Guildhall.

Parking.  I would recommend you use one of Norwich's Park and Ride schemes as you will be in the city all day.  If you need to be closer there is a Multi Storey car park quite close on St Giles as well as car parks at St Andrews, the Forum and Chapelfields Mall.  There is lots of information here to help you get here.

Don't forget you can get your tickets from our online ticket partner here

Accessibility at No 47 St Giles

posted 19 Jul 2016, 05:32 by Harvest Moon Festival


Those of us who frequent historic buildings know that they can be rather interesting to move around; with their extensions and additions they can be tricky to navigate. 

With this in mind I wanted to talk about how the Harvest Moon Conference is accessible to everyone, whatever their physical mobility is.  The staff at No47 are very used to hosting large events with a wide range of guests and the building and staff are set up to make sure their guests can get where they need to.  There are a series of stair lifts to help access as well as ramps to get you up and down but unfortunately no lift.

As in previous years, if you are coming or planning to come to Harvest Moon and do have mobility or physical difference, please do contact us so we can make sure you day is as full and enjoyable as possible.


 

A Brand New Venue

posted 5 Apr 2016, 14:47 by Harvest Moon Festival

I was very excited to visit our brand new venue recently.  The beautiful, historic and, quite frankly, spectacular No 47 St Giles is home to the Norwich Masonic Association.  They open up this enormous building to weddings, events and now to Harvest Moon and we are very lucky to have access to both temples, the Garden Room, Rose Garden and the venue staff will be offering hot and cold food throughout the day in the bar.

Will we be hosting our new communities area in the very room that my good friends Hannah & Dan celebrated their wedding over 10 years ago.  Our talks will be taking place in the main temple which can seat about 100 people and is full of history and masonic symbology.  The Norfolk Goddess Temple will be creating a temple space within the Le Strange Temple for quiet meditation and worship.  This is an amazing room that has a serenity about it that makes it perfect for a temple space.

To have a sneaky look at the building before September you can have a look on their web site.

 

Harvest Moon 2016 : BOOK YOUR STALLS NOW!

posted 11 Jan 2016, 14:55 by Claire Palmer

How have we made it better?


  • Huge new venue with plenty of indoor space

  • Cheaper prices! (as low as £20)

  • Power available to those that need it.

  • Much simpler online application process.

  • Advertisement for your stall/service outside the day.

  • Free information stalls for community groups!


Stalls applications for the Harvest Moon 2016 are officially open! This year we have 2 stall options, the first being a 3 foot stall for £20 and the second being a 6 foot stall for £40. All stalls will be inside this year because of the huge amount of space we have available at the magnificent Masonic Hall, and a limited number of stalls will be able to secure access to a powerpoint, so book soon to secure a powerpoint if you are after one. Last year we had a footfall of 200 and we are hoping to get even more this year.


Book your stall before Friday 3rd June and your stall will be advertised as part of the events advertising campaign and included in the programme, so people know where to get hold of you after the day. We have also made the application process so much simpler and you can do it all online within a few minutes. No more having to send things off in the post and await a reply.


If you are a community or group wishing to have an information stall (not selling anything), then you can email the PF Regional Coordinator and ask for a free information stall. We have wanted to do this for some time and we are pleased we finally can.


On top of that, if you are a PF member within Norfolk, then your shop or service will automatically get added to the PF Norfolk website (www.pfnorfolk.co.uk) after Harvest Moon, so that other people in the region know all about you.


For more information and to apply for a stall head to the stalls pages or email stalls@harvestmoonfestival.co.uk
