UEA Live events take place on campus in the Lecture Theatre block. The festival will make every effort to welcome you to campus in a safe and managed way.

COVID-19 Safety

  • Self-isolation: Although there is no longer a legal requirement to self-isolate if you test positive for COVID-19, the University strongly recommends that anyone who tests positive stays at home and does not come on to campus for at least five days after a positive test.
  • Face Coverings: Face coverings are no longer be required in University buildings. We know some staff, students and visitors may wish to continue to wear them. Please be respectful of an individual’s choice on this matter. The Faculty of Arts and Humanities at UEA would like to re-emphasise the benefits of face coverings from a public health perspective as evidenced by many of UEA’s own experts. This will help us to look after each other and to protect the most vulnerable in our community, a significant number of whom are still being advised to shield for medical reasons.
  • Venue Ventilation: Mechanical ventilation systems are in place at the venue. These are regularly inspected and meet government guidelines for COVID precautions.
  • Sanitisation: Sanitisation points have been added throughout the venue. Staff and volunteers will be undertaking regular sanitisation of touchpoints (handrails, doors etc.).

Please note: we are monitoring the current Covid-19 situation closely and attendance is based on current rules and subject to change at any time as a result of government recommendations or requirements. If necessary, events may be held online and your tickets will be transferred to this format.

If you have any questions relating to COVID-19 safety at UEA Live events, please contact

We are grateful for your support and very much look forward to seeing you in person.

Getting to UEA and the Lecture Theatre Block

UEA is a campus university located 3 miles from Norwich city centre. The full address for navigation systems and maps is University of East Anglia, Norwich Research Park, Norwich, Norfolk, NR4 7TJ. For further information about public transport, car parking and cycling to UEA, please visit the UEA website for full directions.

The Lecture Theatre block, where our events take place, is situated at the heart of the UEA campus, opposite the Library. Once you arrive on UEA campus, there are signposts and maps placed periodically along the paths. Please follow the signs for the ‘Lecture Theatre’, or refer to the UEA campus map for directions.

Travelling by car and parking at UEA:

We recommend parking in the University’s main car park (see campus map). Parking for UEA Live attendees is FREE in the main UEA carpark from 6pm the night of the event.

When entering the carpark, you will receive a yellow token. When leaving the carpark, bypass the pay machines and insert the token at the car park barrier.

*Please note, there is a £25 charge for lost tokens.

Accessible parking is available in the main UEA carpark as well as at the back of the lecture theatre block on Suffolk Road. You must display a blue badge when using these spaces. Further details about accessible parking can be found here on the UEA website.

Please note that parking on campus is extremely limited so please TRAVEL GREEN – walk, cycle, or use public transport, where possible.

Travelling by bus: there are two buses that run from Norwich city centre (with stops at the train station) to UEA – the number 25 and number 26 buses. Both bus routes run frequently throughout the evening and we recommend that you consider travelling to and from UEA by bus, especially as pressure on our main car park can be considerable during the evenings.
